About this movie

The Oscar nominated actor best known for his role of Mr. Miyagi, left behind a painfully revealing autobiographical record of his much-too-brief time here on earth. Tracing his journey from being bed bound as a boy to the bright lights and discrimination in Hollywood. Deep inside that sweet, generous, multi-talented performer seethed an army of demons, that even alcohol and drugs couldn't mask.

Like many peers, I went and studied and still practice and teach Karate. Pat Morita aka Mr. Miyagi was the inspiration. Get to know about his life and true story, touched my heart as deep as when I saw "The Karate Kid". Thank you for this. Some of the aspects of his life are similar to mine and seeing it all has hit hard and deep into my heart and surely, it has helped me realizing that we can do better for ourselves and no matter what demon we are fighting, how broken is our heart or how lonely we are, we cannot give up on ourselves. Thank you Pat for teaching me also that. Ohio
