It's been almost a year
since Natsumi and her family moved from the town of Onigafuchi. Her
grandmother, a native of Hinamizawa village, fears that they will be cursed for
abandoning the mountains, but Natsumi has never been happier, making new
friends and enjoying school life. When a terrible gas explosion in Hinamizawa
wipes out everyone in the village, her grandmother is convinced it is the wrath
of the village god, Oyashiro-sama. Natsumi's family has never taken
Grandmother's beliefs seriously, but her devotion to Oyashiro-sama has taken a
frightening turn. Have the old woman's fanatical convictions gone too far?
