Plot Summary: Following the mysterious death of her niece Tomoko, news reporter Reiko Asakawa investigates the cases of other teenagers who died of the same cause. Her only clue is an unmarked videotape with vague images. Rumor has it that whoever watches the tape will receive a phone call from an unknown person, and he or she will die in seven days. After viewing the tape, Reiko and her ex-husband Ryuji Takayama must race against time to decipher the tape's contents and crack an unsolved mystery.
