About this submission

I wanted to explore the theme of male body image, and the lack of attention brought to how the media sets an expectation for men to look like the superheroes and models they see in films, often leading to a damaging relationship with exercise. This film sees a man obsessed with self-betterment, driven over the edge by a desire to improve his body by any means necessary, resulting in his mental and physical health spiralling as his own sanity is called into question; all because ultimately, he wanted to look good like his idols.
