The movie is based on the life of prolific film director Keisuke Kinoshita (1912-1998) and was made in commemoration of the centennial anniversary of his birth. It covers various unknown parts of his life, such as his loving relationship with his mother whom he once had to pull across a mountain in a bicycle cart, his experience in the military as a hot-blooded youth who fell out of favor with his superiors, and the episode that led him to temporarily leave Shochiku.
