Marya has a big problem… How does she get rid of her lover’s corpse, which is lying on the floor, nude, with a knife in its back? She asks Alex, who comes unprepared and without a car. Daniel is called in to help, but he’s more interested in getting back with Marya than playing the role of a gravedigger. Three different personalities come alive and echo, in their own way, the cumbersome body. What will be will be. Wait and see…
