Plot Summary: Shaun Boswell (Lucas Black) is an unhappy outsider, whose only connection to society is as an underdog street racer. To avoid trouble with the police, the hotheaded rebel is sent out of the country to live with his estranged father in Japan. Cramped in a tiny apartment in downtown Tokyo, Shaun begins to feel even more alienated, especially by the foreign culture. Soon he meets a fellow American named Twinkie (Bow Wow), who introduces him to the underground world of drift racing. The dangerous sport is characterized by a combination of speeding and gliding on city streets filled with hairpin turns. Not one to resist a racing challenge, Shaun unknowingly takes on “the Drift King” (Brian Tee) his first time out. Following the loss, he learns of his opponent’s ties to the mob and is surprised to find himself pulled into a dangerous criminal underworld.
