At sixteen, David is much like any teenager, but his boyish good looks rest upon a hulking, muscular body. His weightlifting obsession is driven by his mother Juana, a troubled artist whose only goal is to have her son reach physical perfection by his seventeenth birthday. With countless hours spent at a grungy gym in the company of a motley clique of pumped-up gym rats, David desperately searches for what it means to be a man, whilst also navigating his burgeoning sexuality. With his birthday approaching, Juana demands growth at any cost. Soon David's cohorts offer him dangerous chemical shortcuts, sending David in a dangerous spiral. 'The Perfect David' is at once a delicious ode to the beauty of the male form, a warning of the dangers of seeking absolute perfection, and a striking character study of a teenager in trouble.
