Title: The Mohican Comes Home
Director: Shuichi Okita
Released: 2016
Running Time: 125 Min
Rated: PG

A bittersweet family drama set on an island in the Seto Inland Sea. A mohawk-sporting young man's homecoming after seven years is rocked by the pronouncement of his father's remaining time to live. The film is written and directed by Shuichi Okita who has created a unique world view in films such as The Chef of South Polar and A Story of Yonosuke among others.

Eikichi (Ryuhei Matsuda), the vocalist for a little-known death metal band, has decided to marry his pregnant girlfriend, Yuka (Atsuko Maeda). He returns to his family home on Tobi Island after several years. However, his headstrong father, Osamu (Akira Emoto), collapses and is diagnosed with cancer.
