Synopsis:

Hosted by Congregation Beth Shalom

A hilarious and heart-warming tale about a coming out of a different kind: four overweight guys who learn to love themselves through the Japanese sport of sumo wrestling. Herzl (Itzik Cohen) has been struggling with his weight ever since he was young, and his overbearing mother made it no easier on him. His friends Aharon and Gidi struggle with the issue of weight in their personal lives as well, so when Herzl is introduced to sumo at his job at a Japanese restaurant, all are open to a sport where large people are honored and appreciated. However, Herzl’s dedication to this demanding men-only sport threatens his budding relationship with Zehava, a plus-size social worker.
