Plot Summary
After losing his job at a salad bar because of his weight, Herzl (Itzik Cohen), a morbidly obese Israeli, finds new employment washing dishes safely out of view from patrons in the kitchen of a Japanese restaurant. When Herzl's coworkers and new boss, Kitano (Togo Igawa), introduce him to sumo wrestling, he realizes he has found his calling. Energized, Herzl orchestrates a mutiny among the miserable ranks of a local weight-loss boot camp to recruit members for his own sumo wrestling club.
