Plot

21-year-old Suzuko recently graduated from a two year college. Because she has no particular skills to speak of, she winds up bouncing between part-time jobs. After being convicted for a minor offense and getting a fine for 200,000 yen, she winds up living back at home with her disappointed parents and thoroughly embarrassed little brother.

Feeling like a pariah and constantly gossiped about by her catty neighbors, Suzuko decides to set the goal to raise 1 million yen and finally move away. She begins traveling and taking any jobs she can find, from preparing shaved ice to picking peaches. Along the way, she meets various kind people and experiences growth. Soon, she meets a young man named Ryohei through a part-time job at a store and begins to develop feelings for him. Will a shot at true love change her plans?
