Detective Amamiya Kazuhiko (Naoki Hosaka) is called out of early retirement to work on the case, which is tied to horrific events in his past. His new wife goes missing and a mysterious cult with barcodes tattooed on their eyeballs surfaces to wreak havoc on the city. In 'How to Create a World', a brutal serial murderer is cutting babies from their mothers' wombs. All of the women have barcodes tattooed on their eyeballs - and the victims, under some sort of hypnosis, purchase the surgical quality knives used to kill them the day before their murders. As Amamiya's wife wanders the city in a trance, he discovers someone from his past is involved in the crime wave...
