Set in a decadent world in the city's slums, death becomes a provider people run sakla operations (illegal gambling) during wakes for the dead, exploiting the dead in order to generate income and pay for burials.  A funeral parlor owner sells an unidentified body to Makoy,  who, along with his reluctant brother, Abet, to hold a three-week long fake wake holding the illegal saklaan.  An intriguing tale with a final "twist of the knife."
