A mountain village faces a problem – almost a full cemetery and no free land around. Most inhabitants are Catholics, so saving space by using urns is not an option here. Municipal bum, logger and gravedigger Miroslav, comes up with a solution – a classic coffin can be placed into a grave vertically. The problem is successfully pushed aside, which, for the local council, equals solution. The theme of afterlife desecration in the story touches certain topical phenomena, the characters are confronted with in media. Their comments, based on their limited horizons and viewpoints become a natural source of humour.
