A video about the art of the oldetime strongman, people who perform feats of strength such as bending nails and horseshoes with their bare hands, and break chains with their hair. It follows Queens native Chris Schoeck as he struggles to enter into a elite community and find personal fulfillment through this unusual activity. Introverted and socially awkward, Chris is an unlikely performer.
A true New York story with a unique subject, amazing characters, and a truly inspiring journey. The film will be shopped to the major international film festivals upon completion.
