Shredded

Shredded is about a group of teenage boys who want to transform their bodies so they become "shredded" like the muscle-filled bodies of their media heroes. The film reveals the risks they're willing to take to achieve the ideal male shape, exploring supplement use and the temptations of steroids. With frank honesty, the boys relate their experiences, desires and motivations to the audience, who must draw their own conclusions. This documentary is designed to provoke discussion among teenagers - both boys and girls - about body image and where lines should be drawn between healthy and dangerous behaviour
