    When a well-loved artist is accidentally killed by the machine he created to mass-produce busts of the nineteenth-century revolutionary hero José Marti, his family decides he should be buried gripping his union work permit in a symbol of his dedication to Castro's cause. Unfortunately, when his wife (Sylvia Planas) goes to receive her pension, the paperwork cannot be completed without her husband's work permit. Distraught, she enlists her nephew (Salvador Wood) to exhume the body. He follows a maddening paper trail that ends in a hilarious climax about the insanity of bureaucracy.
