As they prepare for future competitions, they follow extreme diets and slave away at the gym. Each man pursues his own personal goals, but all share the same obsession: overcoming the limits of their bodies.Ta peu si lisse is an open exploration of the regimented daily lives of these misunderstood monsters.
