The Temple of Kaili
The film opens with a shot of an eight-armed goddess in an Eastern temple. The High Priest, Clang, offers a prayer to the goddess Kaili in front of a large congregation. A woman, covered in red paint, is brought into the temple and laid on a table.
Clang is about to kill the woman as a sacrifice to Kaili when Ahme, the Cult Priestess, interrupts. Ahme explains that the intended victim is not wearing the sacrificial ring, and therefore cannot be sacrificed. Clang is outraged and orders the congregation to find out what has happened to the ring.
