A teenage bodybuilder must take extreme measures to sculpt the perfect body as he pursues his ultimate goal of winning his first bodybuilding competition.

When 18-year-old Hayden enters a bodybuilding contest, his intensive training schedule and strict calorie requirements are not only tough on him but on his whole family as well. Is the perfect body that Hayden’s working so hard to achieve even an attainable goal or does social media have him chasing an impossible ideal of masculinity?


“It’s always good to have your goals unsatisfied.”
