Old before his time and universally despised, Inuyashiki has only one friend, his dog Hanako. One night, he is turned into an all-powerful cyborg by aliens. Problem is, he isn’t the only human newly endowed with powers. Largely accustomed to manga adaptations, Sato Shinsuke (Gantz, I Am A Hero) delivers a stunning spectacle that also works as a strong allegory for Japan’s demographic tragedy. You haven’t heard the last of old Japanese men!
