Bruised and beaten, arm in a sling, neck in a brace, Arthur Poppington (Woody Harrelson) sits in front of court appointed psychologist Dr. Park (Sandra Oh). “Why did you attack Mr. Debrofkowitz and destroy his business?”Dr. Park asks gently. After making her swear to secrecy, Poppington begins to tell the story of his secret life as “Defendor.” By day, Poppington directs traffic around road construction sites, but by night he dons a pair of black tights, a black jersey with a crude “D” duct-taped to his chest, and trawls the streets in search of his arch-enemy, Captain Industry. In his attempts to combat crime and bring down this drug and weapons dealer who he mistakenly blames for the death of his mother, Defendor ends up befriending a young prostitute, Katerina Debrofkowitz (Dennings). Armed with unconventional weapons of mass confusion, and aided by his new friend, Defendor proves that everyone is capable of making a difference as he puts his life on the line.
