Synopsis

*BEST OF THE BEST*

In the working-class Israeli city of Ramle, "weight-challenged" Herzl has long suffered the indignities that many overweight people endure. After perpetual, but unsuccessful dieting, he and three of his plus-size cronies abandon their weight-loss support group and train earnestly to enter the world of sumo wrestling, where their size would be respected and honored.

This heart-warming comedy focuses on how confidence and even love can arise from determination and the strength of one's character rather than from one's outward appearance.
