Izumi, a high school student who enjoys fishing, bowling and grading newspaper articles based on their level of positivity, finds a lost wallet containing a large sum of cash. She uses it to help out a middle-aged fishing buddy and treat her friends to lunch before she trying to find the wallet’s owner, a wealthy high school student.
