rated for 0 + years
Bodybuilding poses an honourable way out of the dregs of post-Taliban Afghan society. But it’s a long slog to the coveted title of Mr. Afghanistan. Where others beef themselves up with protein mixes and steroids, the poor are restricted to 15 hard-boiled eggs a day. The documentary accompanies bodybuilders Noor (Mr. Kabul) and Hamid (Cesar) from the ruins of Kabul to the Asian Championship in glittering Dubai.
