Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Director Masato Harada takes the helm for this eerie horror film concerning a song that inspires listeners to take their own lives. The year was 1933, and Hungarian composer Rezs Seress was stuck in a slump. In order to cope with his depression, Seress composed a melancholy little ditty entitled "Gloomy Sunday". According to legend, this sad but beautiful song has inspired many a forlorn soul to succumb to their inner malaise. Seventy years after the fact, it seems that "Gloomy Sunday" still has the power to corrode the soul. A woman named Kana has suffered a mysterious death, leaving her two friends Anzu and Riku to make sense of a seemingly random tragedy. Upon learning of the urban legend surrounding Seress's downbeat ditty, Anzu and Riku discover a disturbing pattern.
