Short Synopsis: 

Nitaboh is the story of a man’s grit and determination to rise above his condition to bring his dreams to fulfilment. Born in a poor house, blinded by 8 years of age and orphaned by 11, the film follows a beautiful story of how Nitaboh not just saw his dream of being a Shamisen player come true but also made sure to develop a unique style of performance that has continued to this date.
