Big in Japan
Desperation forces unconventional surf rock band Tennis Pro on a wild journey from Seattle, Washington to Tokyo, Japan for what they believe is one last shot at international fame. After seven years as a band, with day jobs and young families at home, they still cling to the belief that they were destined to deliver their music to the nation they believe will celebrate it . Armed with a potential hit single, “Rock over Tokyo,” and a scrappy pioneering spirit, the three band members hit the streets trying to make the magic happen, in spite of cultural barriers, distractions and missteps. In spite of themselves, their dream is infectious, and soon they have everybody believing they just might make it BIG IN JAPAN.
Directed by award winning director John Jeffcoat, Big in Japan is scheduled to be released in 2012. View the trailer above.
