Heated passion is the downfall of Lemon, the shunned samurai of Ghost Story. After being refused marriage to his love Iwa, his sword spills blood in a fit of rage. The servant Naoske quickly comes to Lemon's aid, helping him cover up the murders that he witnessed.

But good deeds come with a price  Naoske would like some blood spilt himself, so that he can acquire Iwa's sister, Sode. Building their relationships on lies, their livelihood is stifled with poverty. Facing the overwhelming challenge of supporting a wife and son, Lemon shifts his love to a richer woman and Naoske quickly devises a deadly plan. This time however, the dead won't lie quietly.

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.
