Black comedy about a barkeeper who wants to get some publicity by improving on the world-record of lying in a grave. There is little media interest until, after 124 days, a TV crew that has been stranded with their car spends a night in the bar. Several dramatic developments severely disrupt the lives of quite a few people. Rigor Mortis is based on a true story.
