Synopsis

In the faraway land there was a village and a red river carried its crimson waters across this little piece of land. Beside the river sat a small toilet shed; everyone liked it even though it was horribly dirty and smelly. For a hundred years, the villagers thought they would live happily ever after. 

One day, the king sent down an order to tear down the toilet. The villagers tried searching for the toilet construction manual passed down by their ancestors but they could not find it. Hence they shit in the river.

A hero tries to save the river in vain. 
A maiden refuses to be in distress.
He meets a suicidal queen.
She meets a seedy merchant. 
A teacher eats a fish and itches.
The jester laughs. Shit. Trip. And death.
They don't know what to do.
