Once the players have entered their data and carefully selected the event they want to discard, they are able to see what their future lives will be like. Adam warns each player that once they enter the game there is no going back and that within one week, they will be able to experience what their ‘new’ existence is like.

The TA Engineer, Hisham El Sayad will discover that if his wish to change his destiny is fulfilled, his life will come to an end as the accident, which left him disabled, saved him from falsely being accused of being a terrorist and dying in prison.
The eminent cardiologist, Dr. Maher Mourad, who lost his reputation upon the death of his patient on the operating table, realizes that the survival of his patient, who turns out to be a drug dealer, would have allowed the smuggling of a high dose of drugs to the country leading to endangering the lives of many young people and the death of his only son.

Upon realizing the catastrophic outcome of the change of fortune, they frantically try to convince Adam to stop the game. Adam makes it very clear that there is no “Escape” button. Each of the player’s roles is integral to the others and therefore it cannot be stopped. Desperate, they search for each other before the week ends so that they can abort the game.
As they come to know each other during their quest, they discover that their fate is truly intertwined in a strange way.
Unable to take Adam to court or hack the game, all the players agree to make it clear to Adam that they have unanimously agreed to abort his game. Adam obstinately declines their request as time became critical.
Finally they realize the secret of the game which will actually alter their view of life and consequently will change their lives to the better.
