AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Bryan Mars was an Australian swimming legend and surf rescue hero brought down by over-eating. He blew it when he blew out, just before the Polympics. Then he disappeared.

'Director Stirling Seagrave wants to make the movie of Bryan’s life. Soap opera star

Garvey Quinn agrees to put on weight for the role. Stirling tells Garvey he will be able to lose the fat after the film is made. Garvey is not so sure, but his actress girlfriend tells him he owes it to his art to give it a go, after all, De Niro did it in Raging Bull. And so the home deliveries of KFC begin.

'Told in the voices of Garvey and Bryan, this is a poignant comedy about celebrity, sport, film-making, and what it’s like to be fat. Really fat.'
