Back The Guardian

Movie Synopsis

Ben Randall, a legendary U.S. Coast Guard rescue swimmer who loses his team in a freak accident during a mission, is sent down to oversee the training of a new class of recruits. There Randall meets Jake Fischer, a promising hot shot with fist full of high school swimming records. But beneath Randall's heroism and Fischer's cocky facade are real people desperately in need of help. The Guardian is not only an ode to the brave men and women who serve in the Coast Guard, but also an exploration of what it takes to lead, what it means to follow, and the underlying nature of self-sacrifice.
