Jiro's lifelong dream has always been to design and fly extraordinary planes. Crippled by nearsightedness that started as a child, Jiro was crushed when he discovered that he would be unable to fly because of his condition. In 1927, he gets a job as an aeronautical engineer and launches an exciting career as a leading plane designer in his time. Inspired by the incredible true story, this film follows Jiro through his career as a plane designer and the major events that he experienced. This includes the great depression, Kanto Earthquake, and Japan's quest to acquire a great empire in World War II. After Jiro finds true love with Nahoko, his life is changed forever as he learns about the extraordinary power of love.
