Discover the horrifying truth behind Ringu's viral video in this spine-tingling origin story. Thirty years prior to the events of Ringu, teenager Sadako (Yukie Nakama, Shinobi: Heart Under Blade), plagued by nightmares and a suspicion that she has inherited her mother's psychic abilities, joins a drama troupe as a form of therapy. When the leading actress dies under mysterious circumstances, Sadako takes on the role, much to the consternation of her peers, who suspect her of being responsible for the death. As a string of supernatural events unfolds around the troupe, Sadako's latent power continues to manifest itself, paving the way for a horrifying final confrontation - the repercussions of which will be felt for generations.
