  • Introduction
Kohei Tsukuda gives up his career as a space engineer taking over his father’s small engine factory – Tsukuda Manufacturing. However, a patent-infringement lawsuit and loss of their major clients drive them to danger of bankruptcy. Then a major conglomerate which has an ambition to develop Japan’s first rocket, Teikoku Heavy Industries approaches Tsukuda with an offer to buy its patent rights for the engine valve. The money can save the company but the patent holds Tsukuda’s dream… Even though it is a small factory in an old town, with their fortitude and their pride in engineering, Tsukuda eventually turns the tables on the self-serving large companies. By depicting the engineers who strive to overcome adversity to launch Japan’s first rocket, this entertainment drama gives viewers the determination to face tomorrow.
