Following the death of his grandfather, a young airport worker named Tatsuya returns to his family home in a remote valley and discovers that a curse has been placed on the village by the leader of a band of samurai warriors, who were brutally murdered there 400 years earlier. As the bodies begin to pile up, fearful villagers blame Tatsuya for the deaths, while an attractive widow named Miyako and a private detective called Kindachi help Tatsuya uncover the truth.
