[ Story ]

Akira Yamazaki is a man who has never given up on his ideals despite being tossed about by "fate" such as his father's company going bankrupt and running away at night. As the son of a prominent family, he is promised the position of next president. Akira Kaido is a man who continues to fight against such fate. The lives of these two men, who were born and raised differently, intersect as if they are being guided by something. They grow up through various experiences, choose the same job as bankers, and meet as good rivals at a training session for new employees. Then, they meet again when a large company is on the verge of bankruptcy. How were their "conviction" "character" and "decisiveness" born and nurtured in them? This film unravels the mystery by depicting the lives of the two. From childhood to adolescence, everyone experiences life choices. With the key words of life as its axis, the film incorporates actual social events such as changes in the distribution industry, the bubble economy and corporate restructuring.
The film depicts the lives of two fascinating men, Akira and Akira, against the backdrop of Japan‘s turbulent times from the 1950s to the 1990s. Akira and Akira・・・・・
This work is about "Choice of the Fate".
