• The white horse of alih is a story that examines a discrimination based on race and religion. It started when the two brothers tried to kill the people celebrating the friend-ship day. It confuses Alih whether he will do it or not. They want to kill those people because they want to wash away their shame and gain respect. Then, Alih saw Fermina standing on a float while he waits for his brother. Eventually, his brother Omar came and he is drunken. His brother came to Fermina but Alih blocked his way and killed his brother. He protected Fermina. It came to his mind that his white horse doesn't matter. What matters most to him is the girl he loved.
