After his studies abroad, Jokan becomes the youngest Sielian to hold a position traditionally held by expatriates and struggles to get accepted by his subordinates. When Jokan goes to take up a senior position at the Department of Agriculture Headquarters, he meets a lot of opposition from his superiors. Jokan is excited about the political wind of change in his country.

After over twenty years of service, Jokan resigns and his resignation firmly closes his career in the civil service of the Republic of Siel. But another and similarly challenging door in his career opens.
