The film ends with Akala, the mythical bird, furious about his missing gourd. Although Saro lies dead, Arolake has emptied the gourd, which still poses a risk to Akala’s power. Worse yet, Saro had already used the gourd to bring people back from the dead, dangerously disrupting the delicate balance between life and death.
As Saro’s greed and desire for more escalate, Queen Arolake reaches her breaking point. When Saro refuses to use the gourd unless given the king’s daughter in marriage, Arolake takes a decisive stance.
Knowing his dependence on the gourd, she cleverly empties it, rendering him powerless and trapped in the palace. Arolake, with her experience in escaping, gathers her belongings and flees the village. She leaves Saro with his newfound wives and the angered king.
Meanwhile, Alaafin Ademuyiwa, Arolake’s first husband, continues his relentless pursuit of her and Saro, seeking vengeance for their betrayal.
The film reaches a tragic conclusion with Saro’s demise. Blinded by greed, he demands the hand of a princess in exchange for resurrecting her brother, the prince. However, his empty promises and reliance on the stolen gourd backfired.
Unable to fulfil his side of the bargain, Saro faces the king’s wrath. The enraged villagers brutally attacked him and left him for dead outside the village.
In the final act, Akala, the mythical bird, retrieves his stolen gourd and carries Saro’s lifeless body to the afterlife, forever bound by the consequences of his actions.
