Part of: The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2022

The UK’s largest festival of Japanese cinema is back for its 19th edition with an exciting showcase of Japanese films, most of which have only recently been released in Japan, and all of which intricately render their respective dark depths of the human mind. 

Directed by Yoshida Keisuke
Starring: Higashide Masahiro, Matsuyama Kenichi, Emoto Tokio 

Humiliated by a thrashing given to him by a teenager, Tsuyoshi (Emoto Tokio), decides to join a boxing gym. In his discovery of a new passion for the sport, he is guided by coach Nobuto (Matsuyama Kenichi), himself a long-time practitioner and lover of boxing. Despite his burning enthusiasm, however, Nobuto continuously finds himself on the ropes, unable to win a single match. Meanwhile, his boxing mate, Kazuki (Higashide Masahiro), displays raw talent on the ring.  Will the efforts and enthusiasm of all three men be enough to achieve what is desired?
