Pumping Ercan

Germany, 2012


Ercan wants to prove himself. After a 10 year absence from competitive bodybuilding he reaches for the heavy weight title once again. The documentary accompanies the 40-year-old over the course of a year during preparations and extends far beyond bodybuilding to tell a Turkish-German life’s story.
