Plot[edit | edit source]

Two brothers are fighting over a land dispute. When one of the brothers pushes the other to the ground, the brother on the ground is infuriated and is planning revenge. He seeks out a witch doctor and asks him to poison his brother with "Tetrodotoxin". Two days later, the poisoned brother is believed to be dead. But, he is actually paralyzed in a zombie-like state, and he cannot move or talk. The man is buried alive. Some time later, two grave robbers dig out his coffin. They see that the man tried to claw his way out, but eventually suffocated. His fingers were also worn down to the bone.
