Short Film 'Alpha Male' (2012) Synopsis
Kevin, a 40 year-old, over-confident businessman, aided by his newly discovered hobby (gym), acts but not looks like the regular 20 year-old gym goers.Armed with an inflated ego, he is determined to impress the hot girl on the cross trainer. The task at hand is proving to be harder than he originally thought, as the girl is ignoring him, so therefore, he escalates his weight-lifting attempts to the point of failure and embarrassment. Then, confronted with competition from buffed lads, doubts
start to creep in that perhaps he isn't the alpha male he thinks he is. At his lowest point, Kevin offers to help the girl get off the machine as she seems to be struggling, only to discover ( to his great satisfaction) that the hot young girl is actually blind. With his confidence back to where it was, he continues his delusional quest for women half his age.
Kevin having finished a bust day at work meticulously gels the few hairs left on his head. Still planning tomorrow's events over his hands free, Kevin begins to get changed into his top of the range gym attire. His tone is loud and obnoxious irritating other gym goers, only lowered as he notices the remarkable size of the elderly gentleman's penis next to him, to witch Kevin discreetly slides one of his socks down the front of his cycling shorts.
Entering the gym Kevin notices a young lady on a treadmill; His eyes are fixed before choosing an apparatus that allows him a clear sight of her. Kevin notices a young gentleman helping out the young lady, he stares daggers at the young man until he gains eye contact to which Kevin quickly shies away from.
Frustrated with not being able to gain her attention through eye contact, Kevin decides to move closer. On his way over Kevin begins a number of elaborate and over the top stretches.
He begins to work out, counting his reps out loud, and still failing to gain any attention. Standing up once again to stretch out Kevin is disillusioned to how he hasn't been noticed.
Two muscular guys start to work on the apparatus next to Kevin. Now having competition for the attention of the young lady Kevin begins to push himself to the limits taking his weights higher.
Kevin's eyes are blood shoot with veins bursting from his forehead as he tries one final rep; Kevin's grunts catch the attention of the lads next to him rather than the young lady.
Kevin struggles to stand and hastily dismisses the help of the young guys . Standing on the side sipping at a cone of water Kevin catches a glance of himself in the mirror, he looks old and out of shape. He pats his belly with a defeated look on his face.
Kevin looks up noticing the young lady is leaving the cross trainer, the gym trainer is heading over to help her, Kevin rushes over in front of him as he offers a hand. She seems to be reaching for a stick which he passes her. She thanks him, at this point Kevin realizes she is blind and is left dumbfounded. As the young lady walks off the machine, she slowly is bumping into every weight machines.
Kevin walks up to the mirror pushes his shoulder back and tenses.
Kevin is running on a treadmill, he keeps looking over at the girl next to him , as he increases the speed.
