About: Stanless Steel can leg-press 10,000 pound dump trucks, drive nails through boards with just his bare hands, and can even bend a U.S. penny in his fingersÑa feat no one else in the world can accomplish. These are acts, he feels, not just of physical strength but of mental and emotional strengthÑdemonstrations of the kind of change possible through will-power and perseverance. Yet as Stan reaches middle age, career disappointments and difficult personal relationships begin to test these strengths and force him to struggle with the weaknesses around himÑincluding his own.
Befitting its subject's sense of integrity and artistic purity, Strongman uses a hard-core verite approach and applies it to a thoroughly modern story.
