But he is not welcome. Nobody wants Death in their living room. Before we know it, a new lease of life enters Ana Nil’s musty world, her estranged lover Jo visits, her rich godson Born Kuber rushes in for shelter from a wild storm and Dr. Zeus is summoned to investigate the stranger in the house, Mr. Yameer.
