Jacob, a sweet, yet socially uncoordinated schoolboy, is in love with his classmate, Chloe Martin. After being called fat by Chloe’s best friend, Faye, Jacob starts to feel very insecure and self-conscious about the way he looks. In a frenzied bid to win Chloe’s desired affection, Jacob decides to loose some weight. In doing so, he invents some very unorthodox and in some cases, jeopardising, methods of transformation. Fat Boy is a coming of age film, which is saturated in charm and charismatic likability.
