Cărturan, a 60-year old man, lives in a village with his 14-year old grandson. A visit to the doctor brings unexpected news: he will not live much longer. The man is trying to take care of the things he considers to be most important, like where is his grandson going to stay after his death and his remembrance service he wants to organise himself. This generates a conflict between him and the local priest. When things look like they are not going in the right direction, Cărturan has to make some unexpected moves.
