Plot edit

Nagi Ōshima, a 28-year-old employee, has always made sure not to be noticed, not to make waves and to agree with everyone. Because of this, her colleagues tend to take advantage of her. One day, she finally breaks down and drops everything. After that, Nagi quit her company, disposed of her household goods, moved from the city center to the suburbs, cut off all relationships with everyone, and started her new life from scratch.
