Trapped in a stultifying insurance job and a deteriorating marriage, the only bright spot in his life is his obsession with Japanese monster movies, which he shares with his adorable seven-year-old daughter Cassie. Jesse's power attorney wife Mary drags them into counseling, where Jesse reluctantly promises he will forgo Japanese monster movies for one week to focus on his family. But when Jesse sees a rare toy on display at NYC's Monster Sushi, he challenges proprietor Ono to a Japanese monster movie trivia contest. If Jesse wins, he gets the coveted toy. If he loses, he owes Ono $1,000. Ono accepts on one condition: Jesse must face a "representative for Monster Sushi" -- the legendary archivist from Toho Studios Matsuhisa Jin. Jesse goes into geek overdrive prepping for the showdown. But on the eve of the showdown, Mary leaves him. Devastated, Jesse is a no-show at the showdown. But wise Ono has one last surprise up his sleeve that may just pull the family back together. Written by Anonymous See less
