New Directors Competition
A teenager is obsessed with his body. Trains day and night. He is induced by his mother, a plastic artist, who seeks perfection for his son in terms of physical proportions. In this story everything grows. The boy’s muscles grow, his sexual doubts grow, the dark relationship with his mother grows. Until at some point, everything explodes.
