Despite living in the U.S. for almost a year, Kenji, a stage combat student in New York, is still struggling with his English and schooling. One morning, he gets an unexpected phone call from his father in Japan for the first time since his move. Throughout the conversation, he puts up a good front, but vanity prevents him from expressing his honest feelings. After a quarrel, he ends up hanging up on his father. But little does he know there is a real reason why his father called him.
