Floating Borderline

Marino, who constantly sleeps too much as if to keep her past away, works part-time at a cafe while enduring the pain of "bedsore".
One day, she happened to know that their regular customer Mamoru is a futon salesman and went to buy a new futon from him, which changed her world completely.
At the same time, she reunited her old best friend Minori, but Marino feels like they are not on the same page. What happened to her during the blank period they haven’t met? And What is it she’d buried in the sand?
