Denmark / 2019 / 87'
A revolution is happening in Scandinavia. Young women had enough of self-hatred and shame and proudly call themselves FAT. They demand respect and recognition in a diet-fixated society while struggling with their lack of self-worth. For too long they have put their lives on hold and waited to buy clothes, go out dancing and find love – until the day they would be skinny. The day never came, but they found each other and the body-positive movement. Now they set their wobbly thighs free and use their bodies as activist tools.
