A modern day Hamlet -- literally. The murdered factory owner implores his son to expose his greedy brother and wife for the murderers they are.

A modern day playful take on Shakespeare's classic. When a prominent and socially conscious businessman passes unexpectedly, his factory falls to his wife, who is more interested in profit than the needs of the community. Appearing to his son as a class 3 spirit, requiring his demise to be avenged before he can rest in peace, he solicits the help of the living to reveal the truth of his death.

This is the first episode I have listened to that sounded stilted and forced. The dialogue was just not compelling.

Kind of a silly supernatural story for me. It wasn't the best or memorable story, but it was okay.
