Storyline

A year ago, Ray found out he was gradually losing his remaining eye sight, so he contacted Sebastian to find out if getting into better physical condition might keep him out of a depression. Sebastian challenged him to a twelve-week physique transformation. By taking up that challenge Ray lost forty pounds. Now almost a year later, Ray is discovering that he may have only a few months left to see anything. Sebastian has been involved in bodybuilding for over a decade as a natural bodybuilder. Now after having isolated himself in training for a number of years, he is emerging to compete on the non-drug tested national bodybuilding stage. His aim is to represent a physical condition reminiscent of past classic physiques, proving that the sports origins are more impressive than the exaggerated physiques of the present arena. He is facing men far larger than himself in an effort to be an example of the balance for which his sport used to be admired. FACING GOLIATH is a story that examines... Written by Sebastian MacLean

Freaking Awesome - Can Inspire anyone
21 August 2010 | by alpha ballaSee all my reviews

This documentary of 50 minutes can Inspire anyone for their lifetime.

This film involves bodybuilding, but its not a bodybuilding film, Its about a persons desire, determination, asking for support & The required Guidance.

Even though I am only 32 years old, I almost left the Idea of setting a goal be it in bodybuilding or in life, thinking life is almost at the end now! Even if I go to gym or jogging, its just a routine for me attending only few times a month.

But it took an old man, who was almost blind almost his life and nearing blindness to take courage of setting a goal offered by an expert and sticking to it & achieving what many would not have thought could be possible. Truly Inspiring, great, wonderful.

Congrats Ray, Well done Sebastian!
