After graduating from university, he set his sights on becoming a public servant, as his parents had told him, but he failed miserably.
This is the story of a young man who has nothing he wants to do, but when he meets a philosophy teacher and a business coach, he learns what it means to look forward and grow, and grows one by one.

He is 22 years old. He has no dreams or goals. Naturally, he has no girlfriend. All he likes is curry.
One day, as he was working part-time without any motivation as usual, a blonde-haired old man came with the owner.
Later, in front of a dubious cafe called "Philosophy Cafe," she meets a bearded, also dubious, old man.

My life was turned upside down because I met these two old men!
This is a story about a freelancer with no dreams and no hopes, who learns, practices, and grows about work, life, and human relations, including what it means to work, live, and think.
