Ever wonder what would it be like to hear other people’s thoughts? Yusaku, an ordinary guy in an ordinary job finds out, when doctors revive him after a nasty fall down a flight of stairs. He soon realizes that he has this amazing power to read minds, but that it comes with an unusual limitation: he can only access them for 57 minutes after knocking his head tumbling down stairs! This is no problem for Yusaku though, who has always been a klutz. Soon he has turned himself into a peculiar modern day hero in an endless cycle of throwing himself down stairs to help those around him. This hilarious comedy shows just how far an ordinary guy will go to become the hero he has always wished to be and save the earth!

This is the story of a rebellious young man who is trapped in a violent existence and nevertheless tries to do what he feels is right. The main character is a member of a yakuza gang who is quick to strike back at things he dislikes and just as quick to correct what he sees to be wrong. His struggle to define and uphold his own code of ethics makes for a deeply searching drama that is far removed from “feel-good” stories about family and parent-child relationships.
