Content & topic of film:

There is a problem in a mountain village... The cemetery is almost full and there is no free land around it to bury people. Most of the people in the village are Catholics, so there is no possibility to save the land space by using urns. The local forester, woodcutter, and gravedigger Miroslav Malin (also Mira) comes up with the solution of a problem - a classic coffin can be sent to the grave even in a standing position! As long as the grave is as big as the urn, the problem is successfully solved..

There are several other characters and storylines connected and associated with the character of Mira. Lonely Lenka, who longs for a baby but is afraid to have serious relationship with a man. Her father, who flooded her native village. A boy Fanda, who likes to draw, but he can do it only according to the printed artwork...When it comes to drawing of real world, he can't draw even a straight line ...All these heroes will be helped to achieve their goals by their quiet companion...
