Abasiri and his nephew are summoned to identify in the capital city of Colombo a woman who has been raped and murdered. Abasiri recognizes his wife Suddhi lying on a mortuary table.

Penniless and destitute, the 2 friends embark on an up and down journey with the coffin attached off the hood of an ice cream van to bring it back to their village.
