A volunteer home care worker, Nishina Rika (Meguni Okina) visits the home of a bedridden patient and discovers a strange ghostly presence lurking behind a door that's been sealed with tape. Her finding unleashes a horrible evil that confounds police investigators, who discover that a number of people have disappeared from this particular house.
Further investigation leads to Izumi Toyama (Misa Uehara), a former detective who was working on a previous case of a man who murdered his wife in the house and then the son went missing. But when the Ju-On spirit of vengeance that infects the house reaches beyond its boundaries to kill Toyama and his daughter, Rika realises that the horror is spreading - and that she could be the Ju-On's next victim unless she does something about it!
