As a teenager in a rural Japan, Akio became obsessed with Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page. After moving to Tokyo, Akio adopted the moniker of “Mr. Jimmy” and he spent the next 35 years meticulously re-creating old Zeppelin concerts for the local nightlife, blurring the line between tribute and self-identity. Then one day the real Jimmy Page came in to see the show. What follows is one of the most unique stories of obsessive fandom, perfectionism, and culture clashes that you’ll ever see.
