Ennakamuy, a Yamato Prefecture located in the Outback, is home to a young man who lives with his mother and younger sister.
One day, while this man was investigating a simple matter by order of Owlo (the Emperor), he encounters a mysterious girl.
She told him something incredible – that his father, who is believed to be dead, is in fact still alive.
In search of the truth, he decides to leave his village and head to Arva Shulan, a mysterious country that does not exist on any maps.
He crosses one obstacle after another to follow in his father’s footsteps.
Along the way, he meets like-minded companions, and they go through hardships, happiness, setbacks, and painful breakups together.

This is the story of a man who later became “Utawarerumono” – those who are so praised.
