Bahman Farmanara directs this drama and plays the protagonist, Bahman Farjami, a graying director (think an Iranian Woody Allen) who continues to mourn his recently deceased wife. When he gets to the graveyard, it appears a mix-up has occurred: The plot Bahman has reserved for himself, adjacent to his wife's grave, has been mistakenly occupied. Distraught and confused, Bahman decides to stage and film his own funeral.
