Three years ago, two crazy Englishmen bought a koi carp on a visit to Hiroshima. The fish has the potential to become the winner of the world's largest and most prestigious koi event, The All Japan Show.
The fish in question was purchased for 18 million yen... approximately $156,000. In January 2005, the koi owned by the two Englishmen came in second. In January 2006, the same koi will be bigger, better and poised to take the ultimate accolade... or will it?
Never before has The All Japan Show been won by anyone from the west.
This film tells the story of How the East Was Won.
