After Yuta Okkotsu had to witness the fatal accident of his girlfriend Rika Orimoto as a child, he is haunted by her. This even comes to the point where he wants to die himself. But when he is accepted by the strongest jujuzist Satoru Gojō at the Jujutsu Academy in Tokyo, he finds new hope. Together with his friends, he is eager to learn how to break his curse. And as if this were not difficult enough, they must also take on the evil curse magician Suguru Getō, who plans to bring curses upon the population and create a paradise only for jujuzists. The film is based on the manga series of the same name, which is a bestseller in Japan and has also enjoyed great success in Germany.
