Super Heroes Dont Need Capes is the true story of a life experience by filmmaker Greg Robbins; the character named Paul. Neighborhood bullies were beating a mentally handicapped boy one day when Paul, jumped in and defended him only to get beaten-up too. This unusual, yet divine meeting became the genesis for one of the most encouraging stories ever told. A few days later, Paul was playing football with friends as Harlan watched. Paul invited him to play, despite the jokes from the kids. Harlan went for a pass, sprinting past the others, as if they where standing still. Paul realized Harlan had a gift and talked him into running track, teaching him to compete in the 100-yard dash. Paul faced ridicule from classmates for his association with that freak. Throughout the training process, Paul and others learned love through Harlan.
