"Shoji & Takao" is inspired by the Fukawa Incident – a case of false conviction - as it tells the story of two men who just wouldn’t give up. We meet Shoji and Takao on the day they are released on parole, after decades in prison. Despite their hardships and lengthy time spent in prison, the two are extraordinarily cheerful. As they continue to try to prove their innocence, they overcome various barriers on a professional and personal level.
