Synopsis: Mystery writer Asahina Kosaku (Koizumi Kotaro) scores yet another scoop in a case that occurred in the streets. He even personally conducts investigations and frequently makes these cases the basis for his own novels. It maybe because his late father was a scholar that he is cool, but brims with curiosity and action. One day, Kosaku is facing the computer in his living room and writing a new novel. The novel is based on the baffling case of a female who fell to her death in Setagaya in the past. Kosaku had personally conducted interviews and inspected the scene of her death, but still cannot get to the truth. Then a letter addressed to his father Konosuke (Satoi Kenta) who died more than 20 years ago, is delivered to Kosaku. The name of the sender is the female whose mysterious death from a fall, is the subject of Kosaku’s new novel. Drawn to this ominous coincidence, Kosaku visits Oguruma Yasuyuki (Satomi Kotaro), who is an old acquaintance of his father.

It was the only village in his life as a folklore scholar that Konosuke, who was so passionate about research, feared for his own safety in the course of research to the extent that he gave up. Convinced that there is a connection between the village and the Setagaya accident, Kosaku heads to Hanasaki Village in Tottori Prefecture despite Oguruma’s indirect attempt to stop him. The cursed Hanayagi clan (Hoshino Mari, Tokoshima Yoshiko, Judy Ong, Kodama Kenji, Yamanaka So, Abe Ryohei, Sudo Atsuko, Shibuya Asuka, Suda Eito) controls Hanasaki Village. An eerie place where cherry blossoms bloom in profusion, the village is bound to the legend of a demon. And there is a deep darkness that outsiders must never know … …
