Bodybuilders of both genders and spans competitions. One of them is Léa Pearl (Julia Föry). She wants to win and be appointed to Miss Heaven. She is a woman who has abandoned her child to pursue a career which, perhaps, may not be able to give her a little better life. Who can give her a sort of class trip to a still a bit sjabbigt life stuck in the showbiz. She looks, anyway, the most deeply unhappy, all the time. Have to make an effort to smile when it should be pr-images.nHon surrounds itself by a mansgris, their satanic coach (Peter Mullan). Soon she will be confronted by another, the father (Arieh Worthalter) to the son who now has become six years and that the father is tired of taking care of.nPearl be drawn between the preparation for the competition and a resurrected love for the son, which she did not really know how she should deal with.nStarka feelings and a fascinating look at a world you don't know so much about. But also the right tedious. Most of all, it is a deeply depressing film."
