Plot Summary
Neil (Carmine Famiglietti) is a compulsive eater. His Brooklyn-based family desperately tries to get him to commit to losing weight, but, although Neil does embrace a few diets, he quickly abandons them for his junk-food fix. After he has a heart attack, he knows that he has no choice but to become healthy. With his friend Sacco (Michael Aronov), a drug addict, Neil leaves the city to live in a trailer in the wilderness. Isolated, the two addicts learn to discipline themselves.
