Bending Steel is a strikingly moving documentary exploring the lost art of the oldetime strongman and one man’s struggle to overcome limitations of body and mind. The film follows 43-year-old Chris Schoeck as he trains to become a professional strongman, bending nails and horseshoes with his bare hands in preparation for his first appearance at New York’s historic Coney Island. But as Chris begins to take these unique feats of strength public, crippling fears and insecurities are revealed. For the first time in his life he is compelled to confront social awkwardness, unsupportive parents, and an overwhelming fear of failure. What unfolds is the touching story of Chris’ quest for acceptance and fulfillment, two things which have always seemed just out of his reach.
