Grzegorz works as a gravedigger. He lives in Wałbrzych. Mr Charon is a film portrait of the man, in which we see one day in his life. His daily existence is limited to preparing corpses and transporting them to the cemetery. From time to time, this ritual is interrupted by an ordinary conversation.
