Praful (52) is a coffin-maker and has a very conventional run of the mill attitude towards his  unconventional work; working for the dead. Delivering coffins, crosses, dead bodies on order while juggling between mortuaries, houses and cemeteries, his life gets weaved with the stories of the dead ones. This rather ironic film portrays the hard realities of our lives after death and enforces us to question our mortal existence.
