"Shredded" is about a group of teenage boys who want to transform their bodies so they become "shredded" like the muscle-filled bodies of their media heroes. There are risks they're willing to take for this ideal male shape. The DVD explores the use of supplements and temptations of steroids. With honesty, boys relate their experiences, desires and motivations. This documentary is designed to provoke discussion among teenagers - both boys and girls - about body image and the line between healthy and dangerous behaviour.
