Nae lives in a small village in East Rumania. A telegram arrives telling him that his long lost uncle Luca has died. The wire was sent by Luca's executer asking Nae and his mother to go to France to make arrangements. One of the deceased’s last wishes was to be buried in the cemetery of his home town in Sulina, Rumania, located on the coast of the Black Sea, on the other side of the continent. When the two Rumanians get to the deceased’s house on the Atlantic coast, they meet a shaman, Ata, who was Luca’s best friend. Ata tells them that Luca’s fortune was lost and the only thing left is an unusual coffin. Luca’s soul takes advantage of their return trip to Rumania, unbeknownst to them. The Rumanian tradition requires the soul to retrace its life’s steps during the forty days of mourning. Luca’s soul chooses to inhabit Nae in order to return to its last resting place. The procession of these “three” Rumanians is guided by their Guardian Angel through the Celestial Customs which lead to the Final Judgement.
