A mysterious stranger approaches a group of young friends on a sleepy small town playground, then kidnaps and brutally murders one of the girls. Wracked with grief, the victim's unhinged mother Asako demands that the shaken survivors identify the killer or face a penance of her choosing. Growing up in the shadow of this tragic debt, each of the four girls cultivates a warped survival mechanism - avoidance, desperation, fear and obsession.
