The episode starts with a flashback. Kaede wakes up in her house, surprised. She asks Sakuta who he is, and where she is at. Then, Sakuta narrates his past, the troublesome life he had to go through. The stories flash back to where it first began, which is when Kaede started getting physical wounds from social media. It turns out that Kaede has lost all her memories and chose to abandon the part of her she has lived in to prevent herself to be "completely broken". Following this tragedy, Sakuta's mother was inflicted with mental illness from the trauma in the family. Sakuta too, gained physical damage from this event. The tree noticeable wounds on his chest were the reason he was tended in a hospital for so long. Sakuta often escaped the hospital, and that is when he met his mentor, Shoko. While everyone tells Kaede how the old Kaede used to live, no one told her that she was a person herself.
