Plot – Spoilers:
Taniguchi is a meek family man with some spillover trauma from a childhood where he was adopted. His life centers around his son and wife, until one day while at a mall, he’s attacked by a couple of matrix-type thugs. They shoot something metallic into him and mock-kidnap his son before tauntingly dangling him over the edge of a building.

Traumatized, the wimpy Taniguchi hits the gym but embarrasses himself. However, every time he has flashes of anger over the memory of the incident, he is possessed with a phenomenal strength. As it turns out, Taniguchi was a guinea pig in an experiment to turn man into machine, with flesh and limbs morphing into destructive weapons.

Some time later, when the same guys actually kidnap his son, Taniguchi goes after them and accidentally kills his own son. Revenge therefore beckons!
