The protagonist departs from high school during her second year, aspiring to enter a university while independently laboring in Tokyo. A young lady experiences treachery from her companions, leaving her in a state of uncertainty. Meanwhile, another girl endures parental abandonment and strives to subsist in the urban expanse through part-time occupations. This realm persistently disappoints us, thwarting our every endeavor. However, we yearn for an enduring source of affection. We hold onto the belief that a haven exists where we truly belong. Hence, we express our longing through song.
