Under the enigmatic direction of drummer, pianist, composer, and producer Yoshiki, X Japan has sold over 30 million singles and albums combined - captivating such a wide range of admirers as Sir George Martin, KISS, Stan Lee, and even the Japanese Emperor - and pioneered a spectacle-driven style of visual rock, creating a one-of-a-kind cultural phenomenon.

Chronicling the band’s exhilarating, tumultuous and unimaginable history over the past three decades - persevering through personal, physical and spiritual heartache - the film culminates with preparations for their breathtaking reunion concert at New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden. From the production team behind the Oscar winning film ‘Searching for Sugar Man comes’, ‘We Are X’, is an astonishingly intimate portrait of a deeply haunted—but truly unstoppable—virtuoso and the music that has enthralled legions of the world’s most devoted fans.
