Everything that they ever owned, was to go to Quadir’s mother. After the will was read, Gena felt completely lost as she did not know what to do next. Apart from not attending college, Gena did not have any kind of job. However, as Gena later comes on to realise, Quadir had left millions of dollars stashed far away for Gena.
