When their uncle dies during the journey, they are taken in by a troupe of travelling performers. Dimi, the talented magician, and his girlfirend have a fiery relationship, where Sammy is the third wheel. Dimi considers the life of a travelling artist the only chance for them to have any financial support, while Zaruchie wants to settle down and start a family. This need almost makes her leave  the troupe and resort to a marriage with a childhood friend. Eventually, she realises that the only way for her to be happy is to go back to Dimi and share his destiny. They successfully send the children on a ship to Jerusalem and continue their life together.
