Gwendolyn is in her mid-sixties, barely weighs 52 kg and is a three-time world champion in weightlifting. Battling an aggressive form of cancer, the retired anthropologist should really take a step back, but this is far from what Gwendolyn has in mind. She is training to become world champion once again. Supported by her devoted trainer Pat, her son Joseph and her husband Charlie, 20 years her junior, her fight against physical and personal limits begins.
