He byes the most expensive coffin and together with the corpse lifts it onto the roof rack of his small car, named "ficho". Meanwhile, Tase expecting the recovery of his wife hires two house painters to decorate his house. The house painters, who do their private business during the work-hours, come to his house and start working. Also, the soldier Vladimir the boyfriend of Tase and Katas daughter Mica, arrives at the house, as well as Mica and all other relatives who are expecting the arrival of the coffin with the dead body of Kata.
