Toni Sommer (68) used to be the most popular and successful "Schwinger" of his time in Switzerland's traditional wrestling sport, but since the fatal accident of his opponent and best friend, he's been living anonymously and lonely in a suburb of Bern. His energy and his zest for life have left him, and the only friend he has is the grave of his former opponent. Hiro, a 10-year-old boy, disturbs Sommer's reclusiveness. He lives with his grandma one floor above Sommer's flat. Hiro is a short, thin boy who is a highly gifted student in school.

As soon as they arrive in Tokyo Sommer has to decide whether to engage in the boy's dream or to cancel the trip at an early stage, because he learns ... Written by tellfilm
