Following the death and funeral of his beloved wife, elderly farmer Ma Zishan is in favour of a simple, and practical ceremony to mark the end of the 40-day mourning period. However, his son, IyerGubai, proposes something much more lavish – sacrificing the family’s bull. Ma Zishan thinks long and hard over the decision, especially as he has developed a kind of crusty companionship with the animal over the years. The family is also struggling to make ends meet. Ma Zishan then learns IyerGubai plans to spend more than RMB500 on food for the ceremony, excluding the fee for the imam. The day of the sacrifice gradually comes closer. But then the animal suddenly stops eating and drinking, making Ma Zishan wonder whether it has had a premonition of its own death and has decided to purify itself.
