Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
An overweight, underemployed chef from Ramala discovers the fine art of sumo wrestling after landing a job as a dishwasher at a Japanese restaurant. Herzl (Itzik Cohen) still lives at home with his mother. Unable to find any job other than washing dishes, Herzl goes to work at a Japanese restaurant. There, he notices the employees gathered around the television watching sumo wrestling. Frustrated with his weight-loss group, Herzl sees sumo wrestling as a revelation; it's the one sport on the planet where his weight is actually an advantage. But sumo wrestling isn't as easy as it looks on television, and in order to become the first Jewish sumo wrestler Herzl will enlist the aid of three hefty friends who aren't afraid to throw their weight around.
