18-year-old Takuya gives in to his father's wishes and enrolls in a sumo school, even though he prefers judo. Takuya swaps his trendy clothes for the traditional Japanese kimono and moves to Tokyo. As he leaves, his father warns him: "Do you realize there is no place for you if you come back?" Co-produced by Japanese TV NHK, this documentary film grants exceptional access to the first 9 months of Takuya's initiation, illustrating the dreams and disenchantment of a teenager discovering the reality of the traditional world of sumo wrestling.
