It’s 2018 and Daniel Larusso has become a business success. He has formed a very lucrative car dealership that he runs with his loving wife, whom he has 2 kids with. In direct contrast to Daniel’s risen star, Johnny Lawrence is a fallen man. The once popular kid from high-school has now faded into obscurity and personal failure and ironically; Johnny gets by working as a handy man, that immediately had me drawing comparisons to Mr Miyagi. Johnny is also separated from his partner, estranged from his delinquent son and clearly has a drinking problem and to make matters worse, a spate of bad luck and a strange set of coincidences, keep bringing him back to the ever-growing spectre of Daniel. Eventually, circumstances bring the two nemesis of the past face-to-face in the present.
