The inspirational story of iconic brothers Joe and Ben Weider, who are the fathers of the fitness movement. They battled extreme poverty, antisemitism and the medical community itself to launch an empire. Along the way, they discovered Arnold Schwarzenegger and founded bodybuilding as a sport. It's a rags-to-riches story of epic proportions.
