Bending Steel is an intimate journey exploring the lost art of the oldetime strongman and one man's struggle to overcome limitations of body and mind. The filmmakers follow Chris Schoeck as he attempts to become a professional strongman, from training in his small basement storage unit to his very first performance on the big stage at New York's historic Coney Island. The film bears witness to a socially awkward man coming out of his shell, and what results is the inspiring and touching story of Chris' search for fulfillment and happiness, two things which have always seemed just out of reach.
