An old rich man who has been away from his country for many years, realizes that he has an incurable disease. He decides to spend the last days of his life in his homeland. His family believes that he should stay abroad until his death rather than travelling to his hometown and dying in a place where no one recognizes him. But despite his family's opposition, the old man returns to his country. He is determined to pre-order all the preparations for his burial and funeral before his death. So he contacts with one of the agencies which offer such services. He agrees to pay the full cost of the ceremony to Mr. Ashkboos, the head of the agency, provided that he sees his funeral being held tentatively. Ashkboos hires a large crowd to cry, and finally the funeral begins with all its formalities. The old man's empty coffin is creeping by the people who are hired to cry. Everybody is sadly following the coffin to the cemetery and the old man is watching all of these things being filmed. At the end of the funeral, at the old man's house, the mother of one of the crying crew gets sick. The old man goes to the hospital for help and this provides good opportunity for a member of the crew to rob the old man's house because of his financial need. The old man returns home just at the right time and finds out about the case. But he ignores the fact and gets himself busy with watching the rest of the film of the funeral. The robber feels like the old man has humiliated him with his ignorance. So he starts to mock the plans of his funeral in return. At the same time, the old man, watching the moments of the funeral and listening to the robber’s phrases, is transformed and decides to do good, compensate his past and attract real love in the short time left in his life. The old man does everything he can and helps people in his surroundings. When he dies at his house during the wedding ceremony of the two of the crying crew, there are many people who follow his dead body to its eternal home while they are truly sad about his void.
