Celebrating the life of this beloved actor and humanitarian, the original documentary I Am Paul Walker chronicles the charismatic and massively popular movie star whose life was tragically cut short in a car accident that devastated his fans, family, and friends. Walker’s family opens up for the first time to share untold stories and never-before-seen family footage in the film.
