The Guardian (28-Sep-2006)

Director: Andrew Davis

Writer: Ron L. Brinkerhoff

Keywords: Action/Adventure, Coast Guard, Rescue Mission

A troubled ex-high school swim champion looking to join the Coast Guard is taken under the wing of a hardened rescue swimmer.

Once-proud Coast Guard rescue swimmer Ben Randall's life falls to pieces after his crew is killed in a mission gone horribly awry and his depressed wife abandons him, prompting his commander to reassign him to a Louisiana training facility for new recruits. An immensely talented recruit burdened by cockiness over his status as an ex-high school swim champion and troubled past named Jake Fischer catches Ben's attention; through tough love and a measure of discipline, Ben strives to instill in Jake the tact and humility required for him to shine as a rescue swimmer.
