The movie is about two friends, students who are killed by a train while helping a drunk on the tracks, only to awaken in an unfamiliar apartment. Gantz is the mysterious black orb in the center of the room. It “forces each of them to take part in a mission to hunt down and kill aliens, providing them with equipment and weaponry.”
