A RESOURCEFUL HERO STRUGGLING AGAINST INCREDIBLE ODDS

 

Rawcus unites with a group of queer and allied young people to explode the word 'hero' into a thousand pieces and save you from it. [epic music] Using verbatim text from 90s action films, A Resourceful Hero Struggling Against Incredible Odds is a simultaneous homage to and lambasting of Hollywood blockbusters.
