Synopsis
Koji is bewildered by a sudden phone call from his brother telling him that he has located their father. You see, it has been thirteen years since their dad stepped out of the house never to return. Moreover, Koji is stunned to hear that their father has cancer and been given three months to live. Life for Koji and his family became a difficult one after being deserted by their father. A heavy gambler, he saddled the family with debt, forcing Koji’s mother to work impossible hours. While his mother and brother felt only hatred for their father, Koji harbored a degree of sympathy and clung to the memory of their shared love of baseball. When the inevitable day of their father’s funeral arrives, Koji and his brother must confront both the thirteen-year blank created by his absence as well as a collection of odd acquaintances who have come to pay their last respects.
