Kure, an overweight exchange student from Taiwan, has a hard time fitting in at the Japanese university.

To regain his place on the team and redeem his name, he must face off against his mentor and the team leader. Along the way, Kure discovers what it truly means to be a sumo and to embrace the sumo road – ultimately finding a place where he truly belongs.
