SYNOPSIS: Painter Mori and his wife Hideko live surrounded by gardens and pastures away from the hustle and bustle of city life for their 52 years of marriage. For the last 30 years, Mori has scarcely left his home, preferring to lay among the critters around his home, painting while Hideko attends to visitors. But when developers decide to build a condominium next door, the small paradise the couple have created is at risk, so Mori and Hideko decide to take action to protect the garden that they cherish. Taking place in the more affable social atmosphere of the 1970's, Mori, the Artist's Habitat humorously depicts a summer-day-in-the-life of an elderly couple you'll grow to love and root for.
