After a hard-fought battle, Dio seized the dead body of Jonathan to use as his own. In the present, 1989, Jonathan's great-great-grandson Jotaro finds out that Dio is still alive. One day, he believes he's being possessed by an evil spirit and locks himself up in prison. After his grandfather, Joseph Joestar, comes to visit him in prison, Jotaro learns that the spirit is actually a Stand: a fighting spirit with a semi-solid form. When Dio acquired a Stand ability, he caused each member of the Joestar family to inherit one of their own. Jotaro's mother, however, fell ill because her Stand was too powerful for her body. The only way to save her is to defeat Dio, the cause of these newfound abilities. Jotaro decides to join his grandfather on a trip to stop Dio once and for all.
