This is the famous stories of Akutagawa. The wife of a Samurai officer is assaulted and her husband killed by a roving bandit. Contradictory versions of what happened are re-enacted at the trial by the bandit, the wife and the dead husband who speaks through a sorceress. Each version is true in its fashion. This is a triumph of stagecraft, out of a legend, it conjures a mood.
