An energetic but elderly smith is visited by Death, but none too excited about heading off into the hereafter, the wily old coot gets Death drunk and challenges him to a card game, ultimately winning 18 more years of life. Tragedy soon befalls Kaspar, however, and he starts having second thoughts about remaining earthbound.
