My Dad Is A Heel Wrestler

New Japan Pro Wrestling champion Hiroshi Tanahashi makes his acting debut as the gentle giant dad of a 9-year-old Shota, whose understanding of good vs evil is challenged when he discovers his father is actually the despicable heel (bad guy) wrestler ‘Cockroach Mask’. Confronted by this, he misleads his classmates into believing his father is the popular blonde babyface (good guy) Dragon George. A heart-warming tale featuring other NJPW wrestlers like Hirooki Goto, Ryusuke Taguchi and Kazuchika Okada.
