The story behind Steve Aoki’s rise to fame is a roller coaster of trials.

The film, directed by new blood Justin Krook, centers around Aoki’s relationship with his father, Hiroaki “Rocky” Aoki. Rocky was the founder of the Benihana chain.

A mix of festival footage, aerial and slow motion shots, and discussion of Steve’s personal relationships sets the tone for his frenetic upbringing, from slumming it as a restaurant server to becoming one of the most famous DJs of the day.
