Rocker Eikichi returns to his home island with his pregnant girlfriend. Celebratory bacchanals soon take on a different tone when they hear about his father’s terminal cancer. In a heartwarming race against time these two goofy music aficionados from different generations try to unite the family while Eikichi tries to come up with the best sayonara present.
