Plot Synopsis

A pretty, popular and athletic high school girl is banking on a softball scholarship as her ticket to college, but when a sports injury blows out her knee, she enters a documentary film contest in hopes of using the prize money for her education. Convinced that her overweight younger brother and mother use their struggles with weight as an excuse for everything wrong in their lives, she decides to go undercover wearing a fat suit and hidden camera to prove personality can outshine physical appearance. But she soon realizes that she has no idea how harsh and cruel the world can be when you're 250 pounds. She slowly begins to understand how intolerant she has been of her own family's weight issues.
