Sporting a mohawk, Eikichi returns home to announce his engagement to his Tokyoite girlfriend. His conservative dad Osamu is outraged but secretly delighted at the news.

The events that follow are a blend of hilarity and tragedy as father and son patch up old wounds through a shared love for music.

  • Set against the backdrop of quiet, island life, The Mohican Comes Home paces itself to the natural rhythms of day to day life. A disjointed family comes together through a critical time and we see love and friendship flourish.
