A samurai is murdered and his wife raped. The body of the samurai is discovered by a woodcutter. Just before the crime took place, a priest passed the couple. A notorious bandit comes forward to claim responsibility for the crime and the woodcutter and priest are summoned to testify at the trial. So begins the recounting of the crime by …the bandit …the woodcutter …the wife …and the samurai (through a medium). Except each of the four testimonies contradict each other. What really happened on the day of the crime?

A stellar cast featuring both foreign and local actors including Doppo Narita, Maiya Goshima, Lee Swee Keong, Omar Ali, Faridah Merican will be directed by Joe Hasham OAM.
