In a small village in eastern Romania, Nae receives a telegram telling him that his long lost uncle Luca has died. The wire was sent by the executor of Luca's estate and asks Nae and his mother to go to France to make arrangements for the body. One of the deceased's last wishes is to be buried in the cemetery of his hometown in Sulina, Romania, located on the shores of the Back Sea. When Nae and his mother arrives at the house of the deceased, they meet a shaman, Ata, who was Luca's best friend. Ata tells them that Luca lost all his money and the only thing left is an unusual coffin. Without their knowing it, Luca's soul has taken advantage of their return trip to Romania. Romanian 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" Romanians is guided by their guardian angel through the celestial border control which leads to the final judgment.
