Barakamon - ばらかもん
Seishû Handa, a rising star of Japanese calligraphy, collects awards of excellence for his work. Handsome and young, but above all with boundless arrogance, he puts his career in jeopardy the day, exasperated, he knocks out an eminent museum curator who considers his work "formatted and tasteless" ...
Immediate sanction for this stroke of blood: Seishû is punished and forced to go and expiate his crime on a small island, deep in the Japanese countryside!
The young city dweller, who hoped at least to be able to practice his art in peace, wasted no time in becoming disillusioned: between the neighbors who showed up unexpectedly and the gang of kids who chose his workshop as their playground, the part was complicated announcement ... Endearing, irritating, eccentric and full of life, the inhabitants of the village will turn their well-regulated daily life upside down.
“Barakamon” is an expression from southern Japan which means “to be in shape”!
