Endo, a young physician unjustly charged with a patient's death, is banished to an earthquake-plagued island to care for the few remaining elderly residents. Determined to resuscitate their defunct fishing industry, the aging islanders plot against all outsiders. After a mysterious death and attacks on Endo and fellow newcomers, he discovers why the islanders don't wish to leave. The aftershocks of the islanders' past, as well as Endo's own troubled history, replay violently in the present just as a massive earthquake strikes.
