Ben is 12, he is from a divorced family and even though he is a talented chef-in-the-making, his physique leaves much to be desired. So far, the fact that he is fat didn’t bother him much. However, with the summer and school back on, he realizes the boys are tall and manly while many of the girls turned into well-endowed young ladies - Klara especially. Ben longs for her attention but his body is not helping his cause. His size makes him a target of bullying and even the school nurse issues him with a stern warning. And so, Ben, a food fanatic, has to go on a diet. Klara is his main motivation, but his family and friend Erik are there for him too. In the end and after a lot of twists and turns, Ben regains his lust for life, gains love and wins back the friendships he has almost lost.
