Synopsis of Mashiro no Oto

The shamisen is a traditional Japanese musical instrument that looks like a guitar. The grandfather of the teenager Sawamura Setsu, who raised him and his older brother Wakana, recently passed away. His grandfather was one of the best players on Shamisen, and the two brothers listened to him play and learn the instrument.

Since her grandfather's death, Setsu has dropped out of prep school, moved to Tokyo, and drifted without knowing what to do other than play her shamisen. Then his successful and wealthy mother Umeko breaks into his life and tries to shape Setsu. She enrolls him back in high school, but Setsu doesn't know that she will rediscover her passion for shamisen.
