Pretty Strong (for a woman)

The documentary ‘Pretty Strong (for a woman) is a story of perseverance, strength and the life of Michelle de Jong.

Michelle got diagnosed with conversion disorder, also known as FND (Functional Neurological Disorder) which left her in a wheelchair. Her life suddenly collapsed as she could no longer leave her bed.

Several years later, she’s transformed into a powerlifter no longer needing a wheelchair and instead lifting 150 kg with ease. Once an insecure girl, she’s now a force to be reckoned with in the gym.

Her passion for strength sports is however not without its own set of challenges. How does she stand her ground? How does she keep on striving for her independence?
