Junpei GOTO and Shusuke FUKUTOKU, famous in Japan as stand-up comedy group JARU JARU, present the two main characters of Kazuyuki IZUTSU’s new film. HERO SHOW bizzarely confronts two young men both named Yuki in a brutal rivalry between youth gangs and outstandingly intertwines a moving social drama with unexpected glimpses of black humor and even slapstick.
