The news concerning the death of a man known as Oroslan quickly spread through a small village, causing emotions of grief and heartache. In order to overcome their sorrow and restore their faith in the natural flow of life, the villagers start sharing stories about the deceased, recreating his image through their tales. Later on, the ritual of the wake takes place, where anecdotes and superstitions make part of the agenda. A naturalistic treatise on life and death, in the form of a three-act piece.
