Þegar áttræða ekkjan Mantoa missir eina eftirlifandi son sinn í námuslysi, fer hún að undirbúa sinn eigin dauðdaga. Mantoa pakkar saman eigum sínum og finnur mann úr þorpinu til að grafa sér gröf. Áform hennar um friðsæl ævilok fara hins vegar á annan veg þegar hún kemst að því að byggja eigi uppistöðulón í þorpinu, sem mun setja kirkjugarðinn á flot. Mantoa fær bæjarbúa með sér í lið, og síðustu ævidagar hennar verða eftirminnilegri en hún hafði gert sér í hugarlund.

When octogenarian widow Mantoa loses the last of her children to a mining accident, she begins making arrangements to die herself, wrapping up her affairs and possessions, and seeking a local man to dig her a grave. Yet her plans for a peaceful passing are undone when a new reservoir is set to be built in her village, which will flood the cemetery. Mantoa ignites a collective spirit of defiance within the community, and her last days become much more memorable than she ever thought.
