His single-minded focus on his job, however, has hardened him and prevented him and his wife Alice (Swetha Menon) from having a meaningful family life. The costs of Samson's ambition are also symbolized in his assistant, Abraham Thomas (Bharat Gopi), Samson's own former employer whom he treated badly to reach the top. Thomas, now dying, wants his son Alex (Manoj K Jayan) to have more independence in the firm. Samson, however, fears that he will be eclipsed by a younger generation of architects, and refuses to allow Alex either to design original houses or to leave the firm and strike out on his own.
