A fascinating peek into the world below the glitzy surface of Japanese pop music, this documentary shows the inner workings of Japan’s most popular pop band. The members are shaken and a fierce fight for center position takes place, with the girls navigating popularity gaps between members, as well as dealing with a clause that prevents them from dating.
