The young men of Afghanistan have discovered the art of bodybuilding. In a country ravaged by war, these men still hold on to their dreams; dreams of muscle, honour and fame - absolute control of the body in a world of chaos.

But nothing goes as planned; Welcome to "Afghan Muscles" - a different and groundbreaking portrait of Afghanistan after 9/11. Written by Anonymous
