While two monks are on a pilgrimage to Kumano, they seek shelter for the evening at a young woman's house. That night, as they sleep their hostess sneaks into their room and, enamored with the younger of the pair, attempts to seduce him. Desperate to escape her persistent advances, he refuses her promising to seek her out on his return; but unable to contain her burning passion, the woman chases after him. Fleeing for his life, the young monk seeks shelter from his stalker’s demonic aura in the Dojoji Temple, but can the sacred bell and other priests protect him from the insanity of his possessed admirer?
