Though it was once limited to elite athletes, the use of anabolic steroids has reached endemic proportions among young male bodybuilding and strength training enthusiasts. Daring to tackle the taboos surrounding the concept of male beauty, Adonis delivers a thorough field investigation, to bring viewers into the heart of this muscle-building machine and reflect on the physical, psychological, and social repercussions of this obsession with achieving the perfect body. In parallel, Jérémie Battaglia turns the lens towards his own vulnerability and sheds light on the true scale of this looming public health crisis and a growing anxiety among men.
