Summary
America is a country that prides itself on the superlative, we are the biggest, strongest, fastest nation in the world. Is it any wonder that so many of our heroes are on performance enhancing drugs? Director Chris Bell combines a mix of pop culture references, a diverse cast from elite athletes to U.S. Congressmen, with an emotional family story to illustrate the image of a "nation on steroids." When you discover that your heroes have broken the rules, do you follow the rules, or do you follow your heroes?
