Big Dreams Little Tokyo is a quirky comedy about a 23-year-old wannabe entrepreneur named Boyd, with an uncanny ability to speak Japanese, who aspires to succeed in the world of Japanese business but ﬁnds himself mostly on the outside looking in.
Meanwhile, his roommate Jerome (Jayson Watabe) is a Japanese-American who has always felt too American to be Japanese but too Japanese to be American. He aspires to be a sumo wrestler but ﬁnds his relatively “low” weight and blood pressure thwarting his dreams. together, they struggle to ﬁnd their place in a world where cultural identity in the inherent disconnects of the modern global community is seldom what it seems. Australian writer/director David Boyle, enlists droll humor for rave reviews and standing ovations on the ﬁlm festival circuit since its world premiere screening at the American Film Institute Festival.
