Directed by Peter Michael Dowd (USA and Japan, 2019, 113 min.). In Japanese and English with English subtitles.

In snowbound Tōkamachi, Japan, teenage Akio Sakurai took refuge in his room, escaping to another world with a pair of headphones and a pile of Led Zeppelin records. Moving to Tokyo, Akio worked as a “salary man” by day, but by night became “Mr. Jimmy,” adopting the guitar chops and persona of Jimmy Page. For 35 years, Akio recreated vintage Zeppelin concerts note-for-note in small Tokyo clubs, until the real Jimmy Page stopped by one night changing Akio’s life forever. Inspired by Page’s ovation, Akio quits his job, leaving behind his family to move to Los Angeles and join a Led Zeppelin cover band. Soon cultures clash, and Akio’s idyllic vision of America meets with reality.
