The story is about two friends and scientists Ash and Sanada, who were genius in their tasks and were working on the revival of a stray dog with the help of a device. One day, when Sanada’s scientific curiosity overpowers the voice of reason he did something he shouldn’t have done, from then the nightmare begins.
