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.

The Mohican Comes Home
27 Nov - 2 Dec
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 village celebrates Eikichi’s homecoming, but not long after, Osamu is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. 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.
