In 1987, 49 years after the deathly fight between Joseph Joestar and Pillar men, Joseph visits Far East Japan to see his grandson Jotaro Kujo who has been possessed by evil spirit. He tells Jotaro why the evil spirit "Stand" suddenly appeared. It was caused by loathed fate between the Joestars and the Vampire DIO who woke up from 100 years long sleep. Jotaro's mother Holly passes out from bad influence brought by DIO. Jotaro leaves with his fellows to save his mother and defeat the ringleader DIO.
