While stuck in traffic, a Japanese man is suddenly stricken with blindness.  An ill-intentioned bystander offers to drive him home, but steals his car instead; the thief is subsequently blinded the following day.  The Japanese man and his wife (now blinded herself) visit an optometrist who fails to diagnose the patient's ailment. 

The mysterious disease continues to spread, with the doctor being its next victim.  As more infected individuals appear, the government initiates a quarantine at an abandoned insane asylum.  Overcrowding and lack of supervision create deplorable conditions in the facility, though the erupting madness outside is no better.
