Brief synopsis

After nuclear plant worker DAVID (24) and his pregnant girlfriend JESSY (22) are beaten up, David starts using steroids. But instead of being able to protect his girl and unborn baby, he is becoming a threat to them. When the amateur bodybuilder flips out and brutally beats her, she leaves him. Only when David abducts his newborn daughter from the hospital, he becomes aware of his maniac behavior. (http://www.cognito-films.com/featurefiction/goliath/)
