Brief Synopsis:
The last remaining occupant of a deserted Macedonian village, Grandpa Milojko, visits his wife’s grave. He carefully plans his own death and burial in the empty grave next to his wife’s. His plan seems perfect until one morning he faces an even older man than him, Grandpa Janko, sitting on the other side of the open grave. Janko claims that the open grave belongs to his parents and he has the right to inhabit it. The two men start arguing about who gets to die in the last grave. In an absurd twist of fate, Milojko’s fight for death turns into a battle for the life of a man he doesn’t even know.
