This short documentary film explores the tragic consequences of doping through the eyes of former East German shot putter, Heidi Krieger, and is a testament to the perils of doping. Krieger was unknowingly subjected at a young age to a state-supported systematic doping campaign that valued medal counts over the well-being of athletes. In the film, Krieger describes the often complicated effects of extensive doping on young athletes, and his subsequent long and painful search for gender identity. As a man, Krieger is now known as Andreas.
This film was produced in collaboration with the German National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA).
