Synopsis

This biographical film is about the life of Jiro Horikoshi, the man responsible for the design and creation of the famous Japanese World War II Zero Fighter aircraft. Inspired by the aesthetics of design and the freedom of flying, Jiro pursues a life dedicated to the creation of a beautiful aircraft. Jiro's childhood is filled with dreams of engineering and, in adulthood, he creates an elegant, flight-worthy plane that eventually is used for something quite different than he expected war.
