When his girlfriend is supposedly shot and killed, Dick Grayson quits as Robin and goes off to fight crime as Nightwing. While doing so he comes into the path of Deathstroke and has to defeat him before he kills again.
Bob Lee Dysinger,
After his reign of terror in The Dark Knight, the criminal mastermind known as the Joker is now locked up in Arkham Asylum where he continues to wreak havoc as he slowly becomes a threat much greater than anyone expected.
After the tragic murder of Batman at the hands of his foes, his ward Dick Grayson (AKA: Robin) seeks to avenge the death of his mentor, despite attempts by Superman, Wonder Woman and others to stop him.

"Robin: The Story of Dick Grayson" is a 24-minute short film from 5 years ago and it is a documentary that gives audiences an insight into the history and character of Batman's sidekick Robin. I personally hold it with Christopher Nolan on this one. I never liked Robin and I don't need him in Batman films, especially not in the darker ones as they usually focus a lot on Batman being a lone wolf hero, so it would totally not fit if he suddenly had an assistant during his nightly tours. Still it is okay he got some attention here as others may see it differently and prefer a new Batman film that includes Robin as well. They did not really do a lot wrong with this documentary, my criticism is entirely subjective. So yeah, if you like Robin, check this out, otherwise skip it. I personally give it a thumbs down.
