One day, twelve people meet inside the dream world. They differed by occupation and gender, but they have one thing in common: their days are numbered. To survive they are given a task named, “The Choice of the Goddess,” which is a ritual that allows one person out of the twelve to escape their fated death.
Upon returning to the real world, they come to realize they have miraculously survived from their “approaching death.” This death they have escaped was their actual end… But, their lives had been extended for twelve weeks by the goddess who makes the selections.
To survive, they must uncover the “name,” “cause of death,” and “regret” of the other eleven people within the given time period. The protagonist, Rinka, will entrust her fate to the three cards that hold that information.
When faced with the death, how will you live out the rest of your life?
