- Detective Motomiya (of the prequel) continues to investigate strange deaths in the hope of breaking the chain of deaths seemingly related to the ghoulish little girl Mizunuma Mimiko. When the trail leads to a chinese restaurant in Shinjuku, he runs into Nozoe Takako, a young woman also intently tracking the phone-based curse.
Through Nozoe's connection to the Taiwanese immigrant community in Tokyo, she soon discovers that a similar curse has long been present in Taiwan. Her investigation leads to a remote, abandoned mining town in the outskirts of Taipei. What she finds there turns out to be a mind-crushing terror.
