We Are Superman is a documentary that takes an in depth look at what it takes to transform a community that has suffered from disinvestment for 50 years. Troost Avenue has historically been a racial and economic dividing line in Kansas City. But there is a movement to erase that divide. A movement of people who no longer believe it is up to an elected official to come and save them.
