Super Movie Summary

Frank Darbo is a short-order cook with a wretched life. He has only two good memories from it: 1) marrying his wife, Sarah and 2) the time he alerted a police officer to a purse snatcher. Although his artistry is limited, he drew a pair of crayon sketches of those incidents as his daily inspiration.

Sarah, who is a recovering drug addict married Frank shortly after hitting rock bottom, and she leaves Frank for a charming strip club owner named Jacques who feeds her a steady stream of drugs.

With her abandonment, Frank falls into a depression that takes him so low that he has a vision where God reaches out to touch him with his finger. It’s then Frank “meets” the Holy Avenger, a Christian superhero from a public-access television show.
