In the 30’s, a lost village in South America wishes to perpetuate its strange traditions… The mayor has published an ad in the region: “Seeks corpse to enlarge Miracasas”. Freshly murdered, Ernesto is the lucky one and participates in spite of himself to his carnival burial. The gathered villagers celebrate the event with passion, waiting with greed for the life brought by the death.
