Crazed Police Investigator Sniffs Out A Serial Rapist & Murderer
Dalang The Manipulator (影匠)
18 years ago, there was a crime of passion. 3 years ago, there were 14 serial cases of stripping cases. From just a piece of leather, the truth lies within the mysterious art of shadow puppetry.
Putting himself in the shoes of a theatre-goer, a police interpol officer vows to find a self-satisfying conclusion to solve these cases. In the midst of unraveling the layers behind the truth, he realises that the village’s master of shadow puppets has a dubious past, especially since the handsome boys around him suffer from a curse of vengeance.
Does the curse still exist in this world? Perhaps, humanity is the real mastermind. It is the calm before the storm - a prelude to the shadow performance, along with the presence of an interpol officer sitting amongst the audience. Can he find the truth behind the shadow puppet’s mystery?
A murder driven by jealousy, revenge, skinning, curse, leather, and mastermind… all of which have been shrouded in secrecy of a shadow puppet’s play.
