The setting is a town in Bangladesh, a strange thing happened at the execution of Mondol.  To be hanged till death for murdering his wife and to the amazement of all, the prison doctor finds Mondol still alive though now in a coma. This exceptional turn of events has created a conundrum amongst the prison staff. They cannot carry out a ”second” hanging without a court verdict.
