The Plot.

In December 2001 the world's media focused on the small town of Fargo, North Dakota, where the body of Takako Konishi was found in the woods by a hunter.

The media reported that she had left Japan with the misunderstanding that the Coen brother's "Fargo" really was a true story and that there was a stash of money hidden somewhere in the snow on a road by a tree.

This documentary traces the background to the story and finds that the media, quick to jump on a "funny" story of foolishness, had gotten the story totally wrong.

Only the story isn't true. Yes, the chick existed but she died outside Minneapolis not Fargo North Dakota!

She came to the US to kill herself and travelled around for a while.

The media made up the Fargo story.

This is all a bunch of bad bunk.

What a bore.
