When pure “love” turns into an insane curse,
I can’t escape anymore.
Naoto Ihara lived a happy life with his wife Miyuki and son Haruto. However, just as he is about to purchase his dream home, Miyuki dies in a traffic accident. At the side of the despairing Naoto, Shunsho buries Miyuki’s corpse’s fingers in the garden and prays earnestly, saying, “I will bring my mother back to life.”
Around the same time, freelance video journalist Hiroko Kurasawa begins to experience bizarre events one after another, such as “an empty elevator begins to move,” and “a dead crow suddenly appears in the room.”
Hiroko, a former colleague of Naoto, was once suspected of having an affair with Naoto by Miyuki. At that time, Hiroko was plagued by strange phenomena and was convinced that the cause was Miyuki’s mysterious power. Once again, Hiroko thinks that Miyuki is using that power against him, but finds out that Miyuki is already dead. When Hiroko visits Naoto’s house to find out the truth, she sees a very bizarre sight.
