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?

“A state-operated facility that allows one to communicate with the deceased: the “Connect Center”
Year 2030. With Japan’s recent advancements in information science and neuroscience, human memories can now be saved and recorded. The technology is referred to as “e-Memory.” However, due to the rapid increase in the number of crimes using the e-Memory technology, the government has introduced strict regulations on human memory data. In essence, the government now holds a monopoly on all human memory data. The recording of still-living humans was forbidden, and the e-Memory technology was only to be used on the deceased, giving rise to the establishment of “Connect Centers.” These state-owned and operated facilities allowed one to call and communicate with the dead.
These “Connect Centers” allowed people who were still in a period of bereavement to cope with their loss by talking with their recently deceased loved ones. The protagonist, Kusuhara Hiroki, is a college student struggling with suicidal impulses after the sudden passing of his close childhood friend, Mizunashi Sorano. Her memories were to last only until August 26— a mere four more days. Kusuhara teams up with his friend, Amamiya Kakeru, in an attempt to steal Mizunashi Sorano’s memories from the server where they were stored.
In the midst of this, the two discover the secret of the Connect Centers, and are suddenly embroiled in the fight taking place behind the scenes.
