The documentary IRON GRANDPA follows Esko Ketola, a 72-year-old, four-time powerlifting world champion on the way to his last world championship event. Ketola is injured just before the world championship event in 2013.
But this 72-year-old strongman won't give up his dream of a fifth championship. Ketola couldn't predict all the challenges he would face during his journey to his last competition. --- This is not only a story about will and making dreams come true but also about a person who got busted using doping substance long ago.
This topic is a tabu in Finland.
Some people never forgive.
Some give their all support for the man who has changed.
