Kei, a cynical and arrogant high school student, has minimal regard for others; so it's much to his surprise that when he's asked by his elementary school friend Kato to save a drunken bum laying on the subway tracks, he actually complies.

Unfortunately for them, this is just the beginning of their nightmare - at least, for those who manage to survive...
