In a tiny village, disaster befalls its inhabitants every 300 years, or so they say. A popular self-styled magician named Naoko is summoned as a deity to rid the people of their anxiety.

When a series of bizarre incidents occurs, Naoko is concerned with a genius physicist and Detective Yabe. Do deities actually exist, or are they charlatans?
