Something In My Heart is the story of Hussein Pasha Shaker a man of politics who is trying to impose his influence through his close ties to British colonialism. Hussein is trying to control one of his peers, Mr. Muhammad Effendi, who also stands in the way of Hussein reaching national status. Hussein ends up killing Mohammed Effendi in order to gain the status he seeks. Hussein lives in guilt towards Muhammad’s family but his desire for power and his desire to make sure his crime never comes out means he attempts to corrupt his family’s morals. Hussein starts off with Muhammad Effendi’s wife and attempts to convince her that he loves her and that he wishes to marry her in order for her to succumb to him. However when Hussein attempts to do the same thing with Muhammad’s daughter he finds her firm as she holds on strong to principles and ethics inherited from her father. It is not long before the ghost of his actions begin to haunt Hussein.
