Synopsis by Olivia Cantor

An obese and bullied high school teen called Butter (Alex Kersting) feels lonely and left out, even if he has his loving mother Marian (Mira Sorvino) and one longtime friend supporting him. Feeling desperate, he posts online that he’ll eat himself to death on New Year’s Eve and will do it live via web streaming. The idea gains ground, and he gains popularity in their school along with it. Soon, Butter finds himself rolling with the popular crowd and thinks about what will happen if he doesn’t push through. Adapted from the novel by Erin Jade Lange. Written and directed by Paul A. Kaufman.
