[ Story ]

Extras are maestros.
This powerful documentary dives deep into the tragicomic world of the "towns-people" stand-ins working at Warp Station Edo, a popular shooting location for samurai dramas, through a piercing study of a 63-year-old extra. Well, that's what the movie seems to be, at least. Before you know it, the story is careening along with an odd mix of curious characters and perplexing plot twists. Utilizing mockumentary stylings, this ambitious film forms a compelling commentary on the aspirations that shape film production and the feelings that a simple, ho-hum life can evoke. The cast includes Koji Yamamoto, Yuki Saito, Yasufumi Terawaki, Nobuhiko Obayashi, and a host of others, all appearing as themselves.
