The engaged couple Sagawa and Keiko find themselves lost at Otama Pond, a place where Sagawa grew up. While trying to find shelter for the night, Keiko is cursed with the mark of death by a cat. With exorcism his only option, Sagawa tries to make sense of all that is happening. Soon we discover that both Sagawa and Keiko are part of a long-feuding bloodline, whose tragic end all began with a young couple in love who were forbidden to be together. This Romeo & Juliet tale takes a spooky turn as the dead rise up for vengeance.
