Namikawa is the son of a disgraced politician who, along with his father and sister, have travelled to a small town after living in Tokyo. After a murder, unusual for such a place, happens near to the school he is in, things get even more unusual when he is almost pulled into the TV in his house, but is saved by the fact it is too small. Later, his friends seek out a larger TV, and all three of them fall into it and enter a different world: one that threatens them. Namikawa responds to a voice, and brings out a 'persona' - some large, powerful being that fights on his behalf in a bizarre, surreal world.
