Set in 1910, a young doctor named Yukio runs his family practice in Tokyo and has nothing bud disdain for the poor people living in the slums not far from his home. Recently a strange seemingly ghostly intruder has been lurking around the house. It turns out not to be a ghost at all, but Yukio's twin brother who was abandoned as a baby and raised by a theater troupe. After killing their parents he throws Yukio down a well and assumes his identity, as well as his marriage. His constant taunting prompts Yukio to seize an opportunity to escape and enact revenge.
