ATLANTIC CANADIAN PREMIERE
In a vitally important and overlooked subject, THE GUARDIANS exposes allegations of corruption within the Nevada Guardianship and Family Court System’s involvement in the legal kidnapping of elderly people. The film shines a light on a lucrative industry and criminal enterprise that trades the elderly as commodities. Victims and their families are caught in a web spun by a system that has allowed professional for-profit guardians, using court orders, to take control over individuals’ healthcare and financial decisions under the color of law in order to steal their estate.
In an unfolding saga that reaches to the top level of government, growing communities of Las Vegas Clark county victims come together to bring the corrupt cabal of judges, lawyers, court clerks, doctors, and nursing home employees to justice. What the documentary exposes in this revealing investigation is how many people are involved in a systemic conspiracy against the most vulnerable members of our society.
