Summary
An intimate documentary that examines the mental and physical battle of inspiring old-world strongman Chris Shoeck. Facing a lifetime of addiction and suffering, Shoeck channels this pain into the extraordinary feat of bending steel. In pursuit of a forgotten world, Schoeck lifts himself out of isolation and into the supportive community of performers who push the limits of strength. Exploring the interplay of mind and body, Shoeck's story provides an uplifting story for mental health, addiction and substance abuse organizations. Official Selection at the **Tribeca Film Festival** and the **Hot Docs Festival**. Winner of the Best Documentary Feature at the **Fargo Film Festival.** *"You're not likely to see a more inspiring documentary this year..." - Gabe Toro, **IndieWire***
