Praful (52) has a very conventional - run of the mill attitude towards his rather - unconventional work. Surprisingly this full of life man works for the dead. Deals with coffins, crosses and literally walks with dead on their last journey. Delivering coffins, crosses and dead bodies on order while juggling between mortuaries, houses and cemeteries is what his normal day looks like. It is a refreshing perspective on a humble man and his unique life. This rather ironic film portrays the hard realities of our lives after death and enforces us to question our mortal existence.
