Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Director Dave Carroll follows Chris Schoeck's attempts to become a professional strongman in the documentary Bending Steel. As a child, Schoeck found himself drawn to the Coney Island attraction of the strongman, and as an adult he attempts to become one of these performers. However, he must overcome a natural reticence to work in front of an audience, and build his body into an even stronger and more formidable tool.
