What is the movie about?
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 follows the story of Yuta Okkotsu, as he struggles with being haunted by the vengeful spirit of his childhood friend, Rika Orimoto. As an 11-year-old, Rika made the protagonist promise to marry her, not knowing that would never come to pass, as Rika was hit by a car before Yuta’s very eyes, and became a cursed spirit. The movie deals with Yuta’s years-long haunting and his journey to breaking Rika’s curse, as he joins Jujutsu High.
