A married father of two nearing middle age, Erwin (Erwin Van Cotthem) finds the only outlet for his shapeless, sublimated rage in online gaming and violent rugby action. Withdrawing further and further into his own world, Erwin is conscious of and frustrated by his stunted existence, but unable or unwilling to pull himself out of his rut. Enigmatic yet empathetic, How Heavy This Hammer is a funny, forlorn vision of North American masculinity at a crossroads.
