Twenty-year-old Igarashi wakes up every morning, able to remember only his life prior to a bicycle accident in which he suffered permanent damage to his frontal cortex and temporal lobe. Resorting to copious notes and Polaroids, Igarashi must try to cull together some semblance of continuity to his life that will validate and confirm his existence. Igarashi finds a possible solution in his school's pro wrestling club. Collegiate pro wrestling differs from "real" pro wrestling in that it focuses on the entertainment and comedic, storytelling aspects of the sport, which inspire and enthrall Igarashi to no end. Seeing this as an opportunity to feel alive again, he joins up and is openly welcomed by the club, which has seen its popularity dwindle. Unaware of Igarashi's condition, the club members are mystified at his inability to learn even the simplest staging, and when his much anticipated debut match comes along, Igarashi ends up improvising most of it, to the great delight of viewers. Soon, he has drawn a large following and is single-handedly boosting the club's popularity to an all-time high. Just when he seems to have overcome his fate, Igarashi is dealt another challenging blow. Add Synopsis In Portuguese

If you think you are less fortunate, then think twice! this is an inspiring movie, about reaching dreams despite of disability. It shows how a person can be persistent and try to get up no matter how many times he falls just to be alive and happy.

When I watched this, I become more thankful to my life. It's not always too late for someone to realize his dreams, with the support of family and friends, life can not be that easier but bearable. The movie is funny (I love Mr. Egg), tear jerker (specially the scene of his father looking at his diary), thrilling, romantic --so touchy (scene of confession/confrontation of Gachi boy to his first love at the bus, it's an eye opener guys!

If you like cosplaying, wrestling, then this one is for you too! but be warn, this is not hardcore fighting!

Good thing here, you can not predict the ending, like most movie do.

Found out why!
