When an entire group of Finnish skiers tested positive for doping in the Lahti World Championships of 2001, it revealed the systematic and long-term history of the use of illegal performance-enhancing drugs in the sport. The event also disclosed the hypocrisy of a community that demands heroes and needs to create champions – at any cost. The means by which these heroes are manufactured is hidden from the general public, and indeed the public isn't even interested in the details.
The documentary When Heroes Lie depicts the history of doping all the way from the 70's until the current age. We follow the dramatic turns of the World Championships in Lahti 2001, and the trial of the Finnish news agency STT, which started in 1998.

The Deep recounts a modern myth that just happens to be true. In 1984, a fishing boat goes down miles off the coast of Iceland's Westman Islands in some of the most forbidding seas on the planet, leaving the fishermen at the mercy of frigid and turbulent waters. Miraculously, one of the crew, Gulli manages to survive, despite being exposed to temperatures in which most people wouldn't have lasted a few minutes.
Gulli is suddenly a national hero, a symbol of endurance for a country whose inhabitants are no strangers to harsh conditions; he also becomes an internationally debated scientific curiosity. Yet despite being poked and prodded for months by a host of specialists, all of whom confidently insist that no one could have survived such an experience without some special gift, the affable, unflappable Gulli still appears to be an average guy with an indomitable will to survive — a drive all the more remarkable considering that he had little to come back to on shore.
