Follow the footsteps of author and director Bryan Fogel as he set out to determine the extent of steroid doping in amateur cycling races and other sports. At the start of his investigation, Fogel cross paths with Russia's anti-doping lab director Dr. Grigory Rodchenkov. He soon learns that Russia has a state-sponsored campaign to dope athletes. He also found out through Rodchenkov that urine tainted by steroids would be swapped out as a way to hide the truth and that people had been killed because they knew too much. This is the story of how two brave men with the aid of The New York Times brought one of the biggest international sports doping conspiracies into the light of day.
