• Resolution: Some people said, Alih became insane that's why he killed his brother, but the truth is Alih didn't want his white horse.

Literary Approach Used:
• Historical Approach
The story is about the beliefs and religion. It started with the two brothers Alih and Omar. They decided to prepare themselves for burial and kill someone. Suddenly, a drunken Omar, rampages around the plaza, intent killing anyone who stands in his way. As Omar comes closer to the parade girl Fermina, Alih runs in a flash to save her. In the end, Alih kills Omar and he came to his mind that the white horse doesn't matter to him, the most important is to save his girl he loved.
