A samurai is found dead in a quiet bamboo grove. One by one, the crime's only known witnesses recount their version of the events. But as they each tell their tale, it becomes clear that every testimony is plausible yet different. And each witness implicates themselves. What's going on? Sheila Marie Orfano explores the phenomenon of warring perspectives known as the Rashomon effect. [Directed by Jeremiah Dickey, narrated by Bethany Cutmore-Scott].
