Co-presented with the New York Asian Film Festival

A movie that will capture the heart of the serial masturbator in all of us. Based on the manga by Kengo Hanazawa, Boys is all about Tanishi, a 29-year-old virgin who spends his leisure time pleasuring himself with porn and slaving away at a dead end job. He even manages to screw up an almost-relationship with a real live woman, who winds up leaving him for his hunkier colleague (Ryuhei Matsuda). The only answer? Fight! And fight Tanishi does, as much as he possibly can.
