Tadaima, Okaeri follows the story of the Fujiyoshi family. Masaki is a stay-at-home spouse and parent. Given his status, he believes that he is a burden to his working husband Hiromu. Following the birth of their son Hikari, the family moved to a new area that is better suited to raise children.

As time has passed, Hikari is set to turn two years old. During this time, the family began forging meaningful bonds with their neighbors and friends. Just as they seemingly found their domestic bliss, family ties that they had abandoned began to reach them. However, Masaki and Hiromu aren't quite sure that they have good intentions.
