When his wife's aunt dies, mortician Adolfo uses the opportunity to show his political talent by trying out a new, very communist` way of transporting the body. On the way, lots of different things happen to him, the dead body, his wife and the aunt's mourning admirer, and Adolfo is close to getting mad because he fears he won't be able to realize his time schedule. His character is good for a smile.
