Synopsis: Bruised and beaten, arm in a sling, neck in a brace, Arthur Poppington (Woody Harrelson) sits in front of court-appointed psychologist Ellen Chum (Sandra Oh). After making her swear to secrecy, Poppington begins to tell the story of his secret life as "Defendor" yes, that's an "OR" - spelling is not one of his super powers. By day, Poppington directs traffic around road construction sites, but at night he dons a pair of black tights, a black jersey with a crude "D" duct-taped to his chest, and trawls the streets as his alter ago. As Defendor, Poppington engages in what he believes is a super heroic fight against crime in an attempt to fulfull his unrealized dream of capturing his archrival, Captian Industry a gun trafficking crime lord who Poppington mistakenly believes is responsible for the death of his mother.

Defendor's problems with the law begin with his intervention in a trick gone bad. When coming to the aid of Katerina Debrofkowitz (Kat Dennigns), an underage prostitute, Defendor tangles with her pimp, Chuck Dooney (Elias Koteas) - a crooked undercover cop. By doing so, Defendor bumbles his way into a criminal underwold, and the stage is set for a showdown with Captain Industry.

DEFENDOR is the ultimate underdog story about the unlikeliest of super heroes. While he may be deficient in super powers, he has a surplus of heart and sometimes that's all you need to make a difference.     Source: Sony
