An intense medical action-drama comes to life on the big screen exclusive at Ayala Malls Cinemas in Tokyo MER: Mobile Emergency Room, a Japanese film based on the award-winning television series of the same title.

In the film, a life-saving medical team is deployed when an explosion occurred at the Landmark Tower in Yokohama where thousands of people are trapped. Under the direct control of the Tokyo governor, the medical team rushes to the scene of the accident or disaster with their large vehicle equipped with an operating room (ER car) and fights for the lives of patients, regardless of their own risks.

The movie also features an exciting roster of cast that includes Ryohei Suzuki who won Best Actor at the 4th Asian Contents Awards for his role in the series, Jesse Lewis of the popular Jpop band SixTONES, Hayato Sano from “Trillion Game” series and Kento Kaku who won Newcomer of the Year at the 45th Elan d’or Awards (2021).

Ryohei Suzuki takes on the lead role as Kota Kitami, surgeon with a talent for triage and a casual disregard for safety protocols. As the main character is Kota Kitami, a brilliant young ER doctor, he has been handpicked by Mayor Azusa Akatsuka (Yuriko Ishida) to head a new emergency response team dubbed TOKYO Mobile Emergency Room, or MER. Outfitted with leading-edge medical technology and a large mobile operating room allows the team to quickly respond to major accidents, natural disasters, and other emergencies. Their mission is simple: Save every life. Team member Nao Otowa (Kento Kaku) , sent by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare on a secret mission, ends up forming a close professional bond with Kota, and together the two men put their lives on the line every day to rescue others.

Suzuki also received the Screen International Rising Star Asia Award from the 22nd edition of the New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) and has been cast as Ryo Saeba in the upcoming live action City Hunter movie.

Jpop idol Jesse Lewis of SixTONES plays Tomohiro Shiomi, a trainee doctor with a passionate sense of mission. “I had been watching the drama before I got the offer, I hope you can see my role (Shiomi) growing up in the movie version,” says Jesse.
