Up in the Lofty Realm of celestial, spoiled harvest goddess Sakuna lives in luxury - resting on the laurels of her parents. Down in the Lowly Realms, bandits chase a group of desperate humans to the edge of the cliff. Suddenly, a bridge is formed between the two realms and, in the chaos, a great explosion occurs, earning the ire of celestial ruler, Lady Kamuhitsuki.

Tasked with reclaiming the island, Sakuna will have to reclaim her birthright and learn how to farm - as well as fight - while her human companions will find new life after fleeing their war-torn land.
