A model communist Cuban worker dies unexpectedly and is buried with his union card in his pocket. It soon turns out that his widow cannot collect any pension money without the card, thus the dead man's nephew intervenes on her behalf in order to convince the authorities to allow the family to exhume and rebury the body. The nephew's hilarious journey into the world of common beourocracy culminates in the dead man's family being forced to rob his grave.
