Fat Kid Rules The World (SIFF 2012)

Troy is an overweight high school student with few interests and fewer friends who one day decides to end it all by stepping in front of a bus. He is unexpectedly saved by Marcus, a fellow high school outcast, who then attempts to profit from his heroics by charging Troy for his intervention. This is the unlikely start of an unusual relationship in which both boys are initially using each other for their own gain, but end up inadvertently becoming actual friends and bandmates. The ups and downs they navigate together ultimately give rise to an inner strength and confidence they both desperately needed.
