This is the story of Emil, the man who doesn't believe in ghosts, of his best friend, Titi, and of Smaranda, the late wife of Emil. She is now six feet under and ready for judgment day. After her 40-day memorial service, days pass by, and Emil realizes that Titi looks like his life is over. He wants to brighten him up, but nothing helps. That's because soon after the memorial service, Smaranda moves into Titi's house and starts haunting him. Well, now, why this? That's quite a story, but Titi has a hard time telling it.
