Director duo Sharon Maymon and Erez Tadmor have fashioned a look at a group of blue-collar Israeli men (and one woman) and how they came to accept who they are. Sounds like your usual coming-out tale, no?
Except that they're not gay. (Well, one is.) They're fat. And getting fatter. Oh, and they're sumo wrestlers.
The 340-pound Herzl (former drag performer Itzik Cohen), who's shamed out of his weight-loss group, faces further indignity when he loses his job as a dining-room cook for being unpresentable. Taking a job as a dishwasher in a Japanese restaurant, Herzl discovers the joys of the gendai budo when a match being played on the eatery's TV leaves him spellbound. Soon the establishment's owner, Kitano (Togo Igawa), is reluctantly coaching Herzl and three of his friends, and the "fatsos in diapers" gradually earn the master's respect. Add a subplot of plus-sized romance and you're looking at a big charmer.
