This sequel/remake to <i>The Ring</i> begins with Ryuji Takayama's body being examined by his friend, pathologist Dr. Ando. After he finds a cryptic note in Takayama's stomach, Ando does some investigating and soon learns of a mysterious videotape, haunted by the spirit of a murdered woman. The rumors are that anyone who watches the video will die exactly one week later. Despondent over the death of his own child, and believing that he is being guided by his friend's ghost, Ando decides to see the video for himself. After watching the tape, strange things begin happening around him, and he soon discovers that the tape's restless spirit has different plans in store for him.
