Honiefaith => a play and a real person.
Watching the play Honiefaith last week disturbed me a lot. Stories about violence against women disturb me --- but this show is based on a real case.
The show blurb:
* When a Filipino hostess' dismembered body is discovered in a Tokyo coin locker, Manila newspaper reporter Victor Balmori is dispatched to Japan. Balmori is looking for a story, he finds a nightmare.*
For the most recent article bout the case in English:
for the news report on the real case
There are many implications to this and other social issues to deal with --- of course:
if she was white
if she was a 23 year old English teacher
if she had parents who had the money to come to Japan to make media event
... well things would have been different.
Think about it.
