From Executive Producer Téa Leoni, this inspiring and empowering new documentary tracks the path of four hopefuls as they prepare to compete in North America's only transgender bodybuilding competition, Trans FitCon, in Atlanta, Georgia.
MAN MADE takes us into the heart of transgender male (FTM) culture, revealing unexpected truths about gender, masculinity, humanity and love, as four trans men (who like the film's director were born and raised female), take a variety of life paths toward stepping on stage at Trans FitCon.
It speaks to the ways in which we all choose to define and reshape ourselves, both figuratively and literally.
