[ Story ]

The live-action adaptation of the autobiography of Segawa Shoji, a unique shogi (Japanese chess) player who left his white-collar job and turned pro at the age of thirty-five. It inspiringly depicts with rich emotion the comeback of a man who once failed at his dream. Director Toyoda Toshiaki, who himself once held shogi aspirations, teams up with lead actor Matsuda Ryuhei for the fourth time.
Shoji (Matsuda), called "Shottan", joined the Future Shogi Player Cultivation League, a professional shogi player training academy, at the age of fifteen. However, the league stipulates a player who does not rise to the 4th-dan by the age of twenty-six must withdraw from the league. As Shoji grows older, his losses mount under the strain.
