Kokone Morikawa lives with her father in Okayama Prefecture. She is a typical high school senior with no special talents except one: she can fall asleep anytime, anywhere. Recently, she has been having a series of strange dreams. Her father Momotaro, a gruff man of few words, does not seem to pay much attention to his daughter.

The year is 2020, three days before the opening of the Tokyo Olympics. Without warning, Momotaro is arrested and taken to far-off Tokyo for questioning. With the help from her college student and childhood friend Morio, Kokone is determined to make her way to Tokyo and free her father, as well as unravel the mystery of her dreams. Along the way, she discovers that those dreams are the key to facing her challenges in the real world. Kokone uses her only talent—napping—to embark on a mysterious journey that straddles dreams and reality. And waiting for her at the end of her adventure is a small but precious truth...
