Beginning with a scene of a young boy, Daigo, putting an ailing rabbit out of its misery in a gruesome way, TORMENTED tells the story of Daigo and his older sister Kiriko. Unable to speak, Kiriko serves as protector for the troubled Daigo since his mother is nowhere to be found, and their father is more interested in making hand-made pop-up Little Mermaid books than in paying attention to his child.
But when Kiriko takes Daigo to see a 3D horror movie that features a creepy old hospital and a stuffed rabbit, the storyline takes a meta twist, with Daigo somehow pulling the stuffed animal from the film. When Daigo is then pulled into that same fantasy/nightmare realm by someone in a giant bunny costume, Kiriko goes after him.
