Using rare archival footage, intimate interviews, and plenty of on-the-mat action, director Yuriko Gamo Romer eloquently brings to life the inspiring story of a remarkable woman and judo master. At a time when women went from childhood home to wife and homemaker, Keiko Fukuda made an unpopular choice and took a different path, saying, "This [Judo] was my marriage ... this is when my life destiny was set." This documentary showcases the life of 99-year-old Sensei Fukuda, presenting her as not only a pioneer for women, but as an inspiration to us all.
