Based upon true events, “Immortal Hero” is a dramatic, inspiring account of how Ryoho Okawa, teacher, healer, best-selling international author and visionary spiritual leader of the budding Happy Science religious movement, came to recognize his miraculous abilities and the obligation they carry to share the truth with the world.
Based on Okawa’s actual, life-changing events, and written for the screen by his daughter, Sayaka Okawa, this poignant biography recounts how an extraordinary man has ascended to become a world-changing faith leader.
Makoto Mioya, a highly successful Japanese author and publisher, has a life-threatening, near-death experience. Powerful spiritual beings with whom he has communicated most of his adult life visit Makoto to remind him he has the power within to heal himself. Reborn, Makoto commits his life to sharing the almighty wisdom he receives from the spiritual realm. As doubters, including some of his own family, challenge and question his new-found ardor, Makoto must find a way to connect with his family and the ‘family of man’ to inspire a better world.
