From the dusty ruins of Kabul to the skyline of Dubai we follow the bodybuilder Hamid’s heroic struggle to gather food and proteins, hoping to win the championship and thereby create a better life for himself and his clan. But nothing goes as planned; Welcome to “Afghan Muscles” – a different and groundbreaking portrait of Afghanistan after 9/11.
