The village thrives on forestry, with residents making their living from cypress timber. In charge of this industry’s operations is the Goto family, who own most of the village. One day, a body of an old woman is found on the mountain. The Goto family posits that it was a bear attack, but Daigo notices a human bite mark on the body and begins to suspect something is not quite right with the village.
