Pro wrestling champion Hiroshi Tanahashi makes his acting
debut as the gentle giant father of nine-year-old Shota, whose understanding of
goodies versus baddies is challenged in the wrestling arena when he discovers
his father actually plays a despicable character called Gokiburi (Cockroach).
Inspired by the children’s book Papa no shigoto wa warumono desu, first-time director Kyohei Fujimura conveys a heart-warming tale about the man behind the cockroach mask.
