Jessy and David are two twenty-something lovebirds living carefree in their small apartment. Their harmonious life is shaken when Jessy unexpectedly gets pregnant. Shortly after Jessy shares the news, the couple gets attacked on a train and David feels he “fails” to protect his girlfriend and unborn child. Humiliated and insecure about his manhood, he goes into intensive training and starts injecting highly addictive anabolic steroids. While gaining strength, David starts exhibiting reckless and aggressive behaviour. A modern cautionary tale – Goliath is a lyrical and vehement warning about toxic masculinity.
