From the cover you may think this is one of those laugh-out-loud movies like Dodgeball meets sumo, buts it's a quiet, down-to-earth movie about people trying to accept themselves as they are, getting others to accept them, and finding love in the process.

This movie was quick, enjoyable and refreshingly body-positive.

Sweet and funny movie from Israel, that tells the story of overweight Herzl and his three chunky friends who are not having luck losing weight through a rather draconian diet club. Herzl then begins working in a Japanese restaurant, where his colleagues and his boss introduce him to sumo wrestling -- and the first Israeli sumo wrestling team is born! A funny but also heartening film as the men discover that true love, self worth and companionship are not dependent on the numbers on a bathroom scale.
