Plot

A man becomes bored with his mundane life, so he tries out “ore ore sagi” (it’s me, it’s me fraud), a petty phone identity scam common in Japan where the scammer pretends to be someone the victim knows in order to pressure them to send money.

However, the story takes a surreal turn when he begins meeting multiple copies of himself with completely different characteristics.
