KABAATCHA – THE STRANGE SPIRIT
How do you fight against the unseen, especially when you don’t even believe in their existence in the first place?
In a remote village, two detectives arrive from the city, fresh out of the training academy, to embark on an investigation – to prove the death of a stranger to the village was murder or otherwise. One detective is filled with misgivings and mistrust about the whole enterprise; the other is quite eager and optimistic, with the urge to prove himself.
Upon arrival, they face no antagonism from the villagers, who cooperate with them. The only complication, it seems, comes the quarters of the soothsayer. He’s quite adamant about the need for them to leave the village immediately and not to go ahead with their investigation.
The detectives ignore the soothsayer and proceed, only to later realize how steadily bizarre their investigation is turning out.
With bodies piling up and a cantankerous soothsayer at every turn, they are not in any way equipped for WHAT the true cause of the murders is. No amount of training could have possibly prepared them for the answer to their investigation.
KABAATCHA – THE STRANGE SPIRIT!!! Do not ask for help – no matter what.
