A man buys a television and the seller allows him to pay on the following day in exchange for his motorcycle as a token. However, the man only shows up two weeks later and wants to give the television back without paying the amount they had previously agreed on. The seller is furious and starts chasing him, but while running he slips and loses consciousness. The man takes advantage of this situation by running away and goes to a nearby cemetery on a moto-taxi. Here, the ghost of an old acquaintance, from whom he had stolen a motorcycle a few years back, scares him so much that the man runs away and stumbles upon the seller, who asks him for the purchase payment.
