When Kenji, a Japanese salaryman, loses his job at a TV corporation on his 40th birthday, he slips through to a different layer of society. In this shadowy world he meets a curious collection of characters a travelling salesman with a passion for Elvis, a pachinko pro with dreams of returning to Hawaii, and a TV producer who will stop at nothing to get his big break. With their help, Kenji sets off on a roller-coaster ride of misadventures in this wonderfully surreal, yet painfully real, story.
What the critics say:
'Kenji is the kind of luckless dreamer it's hard not to root for'
