Naoto Ihara was leading a happy life with his wife, Miyuki, and their son, Haruto. However, shortly after fulfilling their long-held dream of buying a home, Miyuki loses her life in a traffic accident. Beside the despairing Naoto, Haruto claims, "I can bring Mama back to life," and buries a finger of Miyuki's corpse in the garden, fervently offering prayers.

Around the same time, a series of strange occurrences began unfolding around freelance video journalist Hiroko Kurasawa: "an elevator moving on its own with no one inside" and "a crow's dead body suddenly appearing in the room," among others.

Hiroko, a former colleague of Naoto, had once been suspected of having an affair with him by Miyuki. During that time, troubled by bizarre phenomena, Hiroko had been convinced that they were caused by a mysterious power possessed by Miyuki. Now, Hiroko believes that Miyuki is using that power against her once again, only to learn that Miyuki has already passed away.

In order to uncover the truth, Hiroko visits Naoto's house, where she witnesses an extremely abnormal sight... A genuine J-Horror where fear closes in.
