Overview

A high school athlete learns an important lesson in reserving judgment after suffering a sports injury that blows her chance for a scholarship, and filming a documentary about what it's like to be fat. Seventeen-year-old Aly (Kaley Cuoco) is pretty, confident, and strong. She's a true star on the softball field, but after blowing out her knee, Aly's chances of winning a sports scholarship start to look slim. A firm believer in the power of personality, Aly thinks that overweight people like her brother and mother allow themselves to fall victim to their own low self-esteem. Before long, Aly is donning a fat suit and a camera in order to prove that obese people aren't pariahs. If she can make her point, Aly reckons, perhaps she can score a film scholarship. The second she walks into school in her new skin, however, the unsympathetic teen quickly discovers just how cruel and unforgiving her peers can really be.
