ಕನಸೆಂಬೋ ಕುದುರೆಯನೇರಿಗೆ ಪ್ರಶಸ್ತಿಯ ಗರಿ …

Irya, the gravedigger of the village, can foresee events. When he sees Siddha, his master and messenger of death, in his dream, he believes that the ailing septuagenarian Gowda of the Big House is dead and so prepares a grave for the dead man.  He is confused and struck with self-doubt when the caretaker of the Big House Mathadaiah  denies any death in the house. He can’t believe his dream could go wrong.

The film retells the story of the Senior Gowda’s death from the viewpoints of the caretaker Mathadaiah. The Gowda is, of course, dead, but the caretaker has his own reasons to hide it. The villagers ignorantly believe the caretaker more than the poor gravedigger.

Next day, Rudri, the wife of Irya, in her dream sees Siddha visiting the village. The whole village is excited to welcome Siddha as he is believed to bring good luck. Even this dream fails to become true. Irya and his wife are devastated and wonder how all of a sudden their dreams started failing. Without dreams their life become even more unbearable.

Would Irya, with his beliefs, with his way of life, survive without dreams? Would a frustrated Irya give up digging graves and take to another vocation?
