    • Gentle gestures, passionate gazes: separated from the rest of the world, young David and Jessy live in a simple two-room apartment in the suburbs. Their love is put to the test when Jessy unintentionally gets pregnant and the thought of becoming a father causes David to panic. Things worsen when, a few days later, they are attacked in a suburban train and David is unable to protect his girlfriend. David’s fear of not being man enough is confirmed and in desperation, he starts to inject anabolic steroids getting into excessive power training. His newly acquired muscles initially help him to feel strong and confident but the effects of the steroids soon turn negative having irreparable consequences.
