Plot Summary: Yaichi’s twin brother Ryōji moved to Canada from Japan as a young adult, after coming out of the closet. He died tragically of causes yet unknown, leaving bereft family members both in his adopted Canada and native Japan, wondering what his life must have been like on the other side of the ocean. Ryōji’s Canadian husband, Mike, travels to Japan to pay respects and meet the family he’d previously never known. Awkward introductions turn into a sentimental education of unfamiliar tropes: gay marriage, time-honored traditions of mourning the dead, Western traditions and even tempura sushi. Soon, Yaichi, Yaichi’s tween daughter Kana, and Mike form a unique and merry family.
