Farmer's wife (Gróa) dies. The farmer (Hrafn) decides to bury himself with her. Nobody knows about Gróa's death. Relatives think that the couple is going to move to the retirement home. Their daughter, Lilja, decides to come with the family early to help her parents prepare things for the move. While this is happening, Hrafn digs a pit, lowers down the coffin with Gróa's body and lies down next to the coffin. He made a mechanism that will help fill the pit with soil. When Lilja arrives, Hrafn is already buried alive in the grave.
