Noam Stolerman | Israel 2020 | 17 Min. | OmeU
At the age of 44 and after a year of intensive training, Yehuda is about to go on stage to compete for the title of Mister Israel. Yehuda, a divorced father who has dedicated his life to bodybuilding, has waited a long time for this moment. Accompanied by his 11-year-old daughter and his personal trainer, he tries to prepare himself physically and mentally to win the competition. His freshly oiled and well-muscled body looks indestructible, but his heart and soul are in turmoil.
SHREDDED tells of the brief moment before the big performance and yet reveals so much about Yehuda’s life, his worries and his hopes.
