Gil Gerard, star of TV's Buck Rogers, plays the title role in Fury to Freedom: The Life Story of Paul Ries. The product of an abusive home, Paul Ries (Gerard) takes out his frustration on the whole world when he reaches adulthood. He drinks, breaks hearts and spends his waking hours seeking out fistfights. Only when he comes up against a crisis that he can't punch his way out of does Ries begin his journey down the road to reformation. Based on a true story, this inspirational drama is surprisingly cloaked in obscurity; it was originally released to theaters on a four-wall basis by various religious groups.
