Frustrated with the increasing crime rate in 1970s New York, Curtis Sliwa and his band of McDonald's fry cooks decided to take citizen safety into their own hands - forming 'The Guardian Angels.' Embraced by counter-culture and shunned by authorities, the group of 13 unarmed young men were quickly propelled to fame and their numbers grew into the thousands. 37 years on, the movement's leader, Sliwa, opens up his dramatic story of life, death, and risk while patrolling the dangerous subways and grim streets of the Bronx and beyond.
