“Thirteen-year-old Sam Cleary suspects that his mysterious and reclusive neighbor, Mr. Smith, is actually a legend hiding in plain sight. Twenty-five years ago, Granite City’s superpowered vigilante, Samaritan, was reported dead after a fiery warehouse battle with his rival, Nemesis.

“Most believe Samaritan perished in the fire, but some in the city, like Sam, have hope that he is still alive. With crime on the rise and the city on the brink of chaos, Sam makes it his mission to coax his neighbor out of hiding to save the city from ruin.”

Other details

The film is inspired by Unbreakable (2000) and Finding Forrester (2000). Sylvester Stallone is a Hollywood veteran known for his films, Rocky (1976) and First Blood (1982).


Crime is on the rise in the city. An old man saves a kid in his neighborhood from dangerous people. The kid is convinced that it was Samaritan, an old-timey superhero, who saved him. But no one believes him because Samaritan is considered to be dead for 25 years. On his search for the superhero, the kid realises that his old neighbour is much stronger than someone his age would be.
