One boys desperate attempt to turn his life around.
Jack has just turned 16 and is 20 stone. He says he’s tried everything to lose weight but currently puts on over two stone a year. Three years and countless failed diets later, this film follows Jack to New York as he looks for answers in the consulting rooms of the world’s leading adolescent weight loss surgeon. There he was given the shocking news that without surgery he’ll inevitably die from his morbid obesity. In the UK only a handful of people Jack’s age have ever received this type of surgery and the teenager knows he could wait years before he’s granted an operation. Jack’s determined not to wait until he fits the tougher criteria for surgery in the UK so he’s taking his life into his own hands and wants a quick fix.
