Doglegs: Wrestling in Tokyo’s Underground

A janitor with a disability moonlights as a pro wrestler in an underground Tokyo league. After 20 years of glory, he’s ready to hang up his gloves- but first, he must defeat his mentor.

Doglegs has become a place where the marginalised can express themselves and confront their demons.  Wrestlers don’t attempt to hide their faults or imperfections, and they don’t let their differences define them. Their tenacity, passion and black humor stands in fierce opposition to a society that refuses to view them as equals.
