More than your average competition documentary, Man Made takes us into the heart of transgender male culture, revealing unexpected truths about gender, masculinity, humanity and love.

Man Made follows four men who are training for Trans Fit Con, the only all-transgender bodybuilding competition in the world. The strength on display, however, transcends the physical: Rese is a young father struggling with periods of homelessness; Dominic seeks out his family of origin; Kennie admits to himself and to his loved ones who he is for the first time, and Mason, a loving husband who struggles with mental illness, works continuously to be the man he's always wanted to be, inside and out.

As we follow these subjects' emotional and physical journeys, we learn that for each one of them competing is not about winning—it's about being seen.
