In the USA, cheerleaders are true high school stars. In Japan, however, they reside at the bottom of the pecking order. The demanding teacher Kaoruko plans to change that and wants her cheer-dancing team, led by new arrival Hikari, to win the U.S. championship. From the producers of FLYING COLORS comes the ultimate teenage comedy with laughs, great choreography, and pom poms. Guaranteed to make you feel happy!
Hayato KAWAI was born in Aichi Prefecture in 1969. He started his film career as an assistant director before switching to television in 2007. After directing several TV series such as PIECE (2012), HARD NUT (2014) or PLEASE LOVE ME! (2016), he gave his debut as a movie director in 2008 with FLOWER SHADOW.
