Chris Bell's very personal documentary, tracking how steroid use influenced his body building family's game, health and interpersonal relationships, is neither an apology nor a hard-lined expose about doping.

Bell makes some good points about the dark side of the American dream, but much of his argument about steroids is muddled.
