Fat Front is the story about young Scandinavian women who have had enough of self-hatred and shame and proudly call themselves FAT. They demand respect and recognition in a diet-fixated society while struggling with their lack of self-worth. Now they set their rolls and wobbly thighs free and use their bodies as activist tools. With the provocative tone of feminism and an artistic approach to the natural beauty of the body this film will change the way we view bodies. It is a film about shame and uprising but also a humoristic and heart-warming journey with a bunch of young, energetic women.
