When you discover that your heroes have all broken the rules, do you follow the rules, or do you follow your heroes?
From the producers of Bowling For Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11 comes a powerful documentary that unflinchingly explores steroid use in the biggest, strongest, fastest country in the world: America. Metaphorically they’re a nation on steroids. Is it any wonder that so many of their heroes are on performance enhancing drugs?
Blending comedy and pathos, Bigger, Stronger, Faster* is a collision of pop culture and first-person narrative, with a diverse cast including US Congressmen, professional athletes, medical experts and everyday gym rats.
Bigger, Stronger, Faster* is the story of Christopher Bell and his two brothers, who grew up idolizing muscular giants like Hulk Hogan, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and who went on to become members of the steroid-subculture in an effort to realize their American dream.
