Plot[edit | edit source]
A man has fallen in love after reading in the obituaries about a woman who died in a motor scooter accident a year ago. He seeks the opinions of his friends on his love for the dead woman. Eventually, he digs up the woman's grave and pulls the corpse out.
The man is very happy as he takes the corpse around on dates, before he eventually gets married to it. He introduces it to his parents, who aren't pleased.
After some time living together, the corpse begins to further decompose. As more and more bones fall off it, the man becomes unsure of his decision. He heads out alone to a bar, and starts looking over towards a living woman.
