A bereaved gypsy from the city travels to the country to bury his beautiful young wife. He promises the priest some raffia baskets for his services, but the man is met with resistance by his own people for wanting to give his wife an elaborate funeral. The widower is robbed by the man who delivers the casket to the cemetery, many of the baskets are destroyed, and the man risks drowning by retrieving the remaining baskets from the other side of the river. The gypsies beat the man and steal his baskets in this somber drama of a man's devotion to his late, beloved wife.
