The heroes of the world might be seen as lean, built, and strong, but in reality the hero lives in all of us. Even the most unexpected person can be the one who rules the world. The movie will capture that idea and show that just a simple action from an unexpected source can alter the life of not just the main person, but the ones who watch it all happen for the better good.
