Boyd (Dave Boyle), a self-proclaimed businessman convinced he's Japanese, and his roommate Jerome (Jayson Watabe), a sluggish but affable Japanese-American sumo wrestler, have big dreams for themselves. Together, the two travel door-to-door by tandem bike, giving flyers and sales pitches to anyone who listens... but Boyd's Japanese clients aren't buying his "Translation Services," and no one will give Jerome -- a paltry 200 pounds -- a chance in the ring. When they meet Mai (Rachel Morihiro), who is unfazed by their odddities and offers a hand, Boyd and Jerome discover that in a world where cultural identity is seldom what it seems, there's a place for everyone.
