Kyoto, XIII siècle : quiconque tente de franchir le pont de Gojoe durant la nuit est systématiquement décapité par ce qui semble être des fantômes, jusqu'aux patrouilles dépêchées par les autorités, tout autant décimées. Ignorant les avertissements de son maître, Kenkei, un ancien guerrier légendaire aujourd'hui reconverti en un pacifiste moine, s'est juré d'apprivoiser les démons de Gojoe. Il découvrira vite que ces prétendus fantômes sont en fait les trois derniers survivants d'un clan aux pouvoirs immenses, qui réclament le trône familial... L'affrontement est inéluctable.

The film follows 18 individuals in separate but sometimes related groups on the campus of a Japanese university hospital. These groups include a mother and father of an unborn child; a group of friends during a dance rehearsal; staff at the university hospital and a team of students researching urban legends. Ostensibly, the plot is concerned with a mysterious outbreak resembling a viral pandemic which causes the film's protagonists to suddenly die one-by-one. It is suggested during the film that this is due to secret experiments being conducted by the United States Armed Forces in the hospital. However, rather than attempting to resolve the mystery of the outbreak, the focus of the film is largely devoted to the relationships between the characters and their reactions to their own and each other's impending deaths. Ishii has stated the film is made to show the absurdity of the characters not knowing when or why their deaths will occur and highlights the importance of drama and dialogue within the film, in contrast to his previous works.
