Made in Vain

A glimpse inside the world of bodybuilding and the perpetual battle with body proportions, size and the ideal body image.

Lef (a.k.a. the Miracle), one of the country’s current top bodybuilders, Stavros (a.k.a. the Statue), his ingenious trainer and Giorgos (a.k.a. the Doc), a veteran champion and a practicing bio-pathologist go through exhausting and life threatening exercise regimes, strict diets of grams and various supplements, motivated by an inner need of being strong, confident and flawless. Distinctions in competition and looks of admiration of a sculpted body serve as a confidence boost, but certain choices in life come at a price.
