There is an internal magic that happens when you play sport and exercise, your body goes through change, you breathe hard, your physiology transforms, you sweat, endorphins are released, your mind is freed, you feel alive, healed. This is the the mind body secret we can all open.  We just need the key.

To know that Asics founder Kihachiro Onitsuka was aware of this positive power in 1949 and committed to packing it into every shoe is truly inspiring.

This film is about fusing this wisdom and heritage with mind bending storytelling and explosive action that will inspire a new generation of ASICS converts.
