M/S of the horse drawn hearse. M/S of the mourners marching behind the hearse. Various shots of the crowds in the streets - men, women and children shelter from the rain. There is a feeling of depression and poverty - there a few umbrellas, many of the women wear old fashioned scarves, they look into the camera with serious expressions.
