[ Story ]

Hidekazu Akai is an actor and a TV personality beloved by generations of Japanese, yet many people today don't know his career began as a boxer in 1980, racking up a record of 19 wins (16 by knockout) and 2 losses while winning over the country with his indomitable spirit. AKAI is a documentary film about that period directed by Eigoro Akai, a boxer himself, U.S.-trained filmmaker and the actual son of Hidekazu Akai. The documentary follows Akai's overnight rise to stardom as a boxer to frustrating loss and his battle back from an injury that had only a 20% survival rate.
