In 1915, two Sikh mill-workers, Dalip Singh and Naina Singh, were entrapped by undercover police in Vancouver and accused of sodomy. This witty experimental movie tells their story four times by three different directors: as a period drama, as a contemporary investigation of the case, as a musical and finally, as a deconstruction of the actual court transcript.
