In Trick, Yukie Nakama plays Naoko, an aspiring but unknown and struggling magician. Following a particularly light-attended performance, Naoko is approached by two country bumpkins and invited to come to their town. You see, the villagers there believe their town to be threatened with impending doom at the hands of a giant turtle god; their only hope at defusing the panic revolve around her posing as a goddess, demonstrating her tried and true magic tricks as supernatural powers, and thereby reassuring the townsfolk of their safety. Being faced with a recent and massive rent increase, and herself knowing of a historical example where such a ruse worked successfully, she gladly accepts.
Upon arriving, however, she finds she is not the only poseur god in town, but in fact the fourth, with each previous god demonstrating a mastery of supernatural skill. This all may or may not have to do with an odd bit regarding legendary lost Tokugawa treasure possibly hidden in the town, or at least one of its toilets (you'll see), which in addition to the self-proclaiming gods has drawn any number of enterprising characters (including Naoko's longtime mathematician boyfriend, Mr. Ueda). And so the conundrum arises: To save the day Naoko will have to expose and debunk the other poseurs' tricks while concealing her own. Doing so will not only net the townspeople some much needed peace, but possibly net her a nice piece of treasure in the process. Add Synopsis In Portuguese
