Note: A man goes nightly to the graveyard to ask God to let him see his son one last time. A group of passing men appear dressed in sheets to portray the ghost of the son. The father is pleased to see his son, but tells him to go back to heaven. When the men continue to advance, the father tells his son that he died because he was so stubborn.
