Mr. Olympia is one of the most prestigious international bodybuilding titles in the world, awarded to the competitors with the most defined muscles and one that Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger won a consecutive six times in the 1970s. Since 1999 it has taken place in Las Vegas and since 2011, Phil Heath has been the Mr. Olympia reigning champion. This documentary follows the lead up to the next event, where Heath is expected to defend his title in a such a hugely competitive world where intensive working out becomes the most predominant thing in each bodybuilder's life. Among his competition is previous champion Jay Cutler and Kai Greene, the latter of whom has come second in the last two events. Will Heath maintain the title once again? Or is it now Greene's time to take the victory?
