Set on an artificial island in Tokyo Bay, the story follows unlikely childhood friends Shuta, Ran, and Koki, who went their separate ways after a certain incident. However, their lives are intertwined once more when they receive a call from their friend urging them to “decide the future” …a friend they thought to be dead.
