The documentary is directed by Hiroshi Shinagawa, and topics of discussion include the two men's approaches to creating movies and other works, their reactions to their works finding international success, their plans for the future, and their mutual love of tokusatsu TV shows that influenced them as children, such as Ultraman and Kamen Rider.
