As a high school student, I ran out of the house because of what my parents said about my twin brother's suicide. I lost consciousness at the beach, and the person who saved me was the young man who works at the restaurant there, Arashi. I lied to him that I lost my memory when he asked my name. Thus begins a strange life of living together at Jellyfish Restaurant one summer.
