In snowbound Tokamachi, Japan, teenaged Akio Sakurai took refuge in his room, escaping to another world with a pair of headphones and a pile of Led Zeppelin records. Moving to Tokyo, Akio worked as a kimono salesman by day but, by night, became “Mr. Jimmy,” adopting the guitar chops and persona of Jimmy Page. For 35 years, Akio recreated vintage Led Zeppelin concerts note-for-note in small Tokyo clubs until, one night, the “real” Jimmy Page stopped by, and Akio’s life changed forever. Inspired by Mr. Page’s ovation, Akio quits his job, leaving behind his family to move to Los Angeles and join “Led Zepagain.” Soon, cultures clash, and Akio’s idyllic vision of America meets reality.
