New York City of the 1970s was overrun by gangs, drugs and crime. In 1979, one man decided that he would no longer grin and bear it. Thus, the Guardian Angels were born. Inspired by Curtis Sliwa, these were young people who shared Sliwa’s vision of a city where people weren’t afraid. Touting red berets and their trademark t-shirts, this group of crusaders patrolled the streets and subways supporting civilians and preventing crime. Director David Wexler showcases the charismatic man behind it all, his crime-fighting stories and what made him tick, in this riveting portrait of a real-life superhero.
