Evil is the heart when wars, tragedy, death, sweep away the civilized veneer and reveal the primitive beneath.
In medieval times, on a remote plain, a widow and her mother-in-law kill wandering samurai, put their bodies in a hole in the ground and sell their armour and valuables, until the daughter-in-law falls in love with one of their intended victims.
