SURPRISINGLY FRESH AND HUMOROUS TESTOSTERONE BOMB ABOUT SEVEN BOYS IN THE WAITING ROOM OF REAL LIFE.

A documentary of the performance Steel (a Max. Hit from 2011 directed by Moniek Merkx that Maas resumed in spring 2013) is in the making. We can not get enough of the seven Steel-actors.

A group of boys find themselves in limbo, stuck somewhere in no man’s land. Silent boys trying to be big and strong, ignoring their father’s rules and mother’s embrace. Passing the time by kicking a ball around, getting into fights, impatiently seated in life’s waiting room. Desperate to grow up and be allowed passage into the real world as a real man, strong, successful, funny, attractive, rebellious or just forever young. Steel is about what it’s like being a boy…for real!
