In the summer of 2021, the main character, Akari Otsu (Yuna Taira), returned to “Yana Hirose”, surrounded by lush mountains and flowing pure water. After working for 28 companies, she finally returned home to report the offer she got.

However, while I was proud to report it, I was informed that the offer was canceled due to a bankruptcy.

Furthermore, what shocked Akari was the dementia of her beloved grandmother, Saeko (Yumiko Fujita). She says she has begun to forget something mildly. Akari is depressed because she hasn’t been able to return home. Her grandfather Kotaro (Issey Ogata) encouraged her to say, “You’re not worried, but you’re all about yourself,” and her life at her parents’ home started after a long absence.

Akari’s job hunting continues while helping “Yana”, but the results of the remote interview are hard to come by. She goes to a university in Tokyo for the simple reason that she wants to live in Tokyo, and she wants to get a job in Tokyo, but she really wants to do what she wants to do. I don’t know myself.
