During a funeral ceremony, a not all that bright young man seems to fall asleep, but in fact he's more involved than the rest. Through his body, a soul makes contact with life.
The film maker provides an authentic and realistic impression of the funeral of a mother, but spiritual affairs play the leading role in the story. The youngest daughter is visited in her dream by the dead mother, who announces she does not want to buried beside her husband. It's not immediately clear why, but on the seventh day of the ceremony, the secret is revealed.
The maker wanted to focus attention on the position of women in her mother's generation.
