Axel wants to put his turbulent past behind him and makes a new start as a bodybuilder. Meanwhile he is confronted with his shortcomings as a father.
His battered body full of scars and tattoos testify to the fact Axel has gone through some rough times. He feels they should be over once and for all now. Putting on rock-hard muscles for a big bodybuilding competition is a new start. He wants to prove that power and discipline can heal even the deepest wounds, but can a weekend away also bridge the gap between Axel and his two sons?
