'Get Ripped' centers on the encounters of the twenty year old Niko and a personal trainer. Though they meet daily at their gym, contact remains indifferent and silent. As Niko's efforts yield results, a game of manipulation unfolds. 'Get Ripped' exposes the mental decay of a young man set to transform his body.
