An “antihero” is a main character in a story who lacks conventional heroic qualities. In this documentary, an unusual group of antiheroes–young people with disabilities–are trained to put on a theatrical performance based on improvised scenes about superheroes. The story of the performance is interwoven with scenes of their daily lives.
