Director Shinya Tsukamoto plays insurance salesman Tsuda, whose placid life with his fiancee Hizuru is turned upside down when his old high-school classmate Takuji appears. Now a professional boxer with serious emotional problems, Takuji's arrival sparks the attention of Hizuru, who becomes fixated with the disturbed boxer. Profoundly jealous of Takuji, Tsuda begins vigorous training at a local gym to acquire the skills and strength needed to destroy Takuji's hold on Hizuru. What was the half forgotten incident, which bonded Tsuda and Takuji in their youth and has now, resulted in Takuji return? Tokyo Fist offers a rare blend of psychological drama and raw physical energy in its dissection of the curious balance between power and frailty. As the edges of this love triangle grow sharper and bloodier, Tsukamoto poses the harrowing challenge to audiences: which blow is ultimately stronger, the one to the body or the one to the soul?
