Documentary filmmaker Shawney Cohen returns home to a small Ontario town to help his family through a difficult time: his 400-pound father is about to undergo stomach reduction surgery and his 85-pound mother refuses to acknowledge her complicated relationship with food. While the family grapples with his father's medical challenge, Shawney must help his younger brother run the Manor, the family's strip club and adjoining 32-room motel. Here, we observe a family facing the consequences of their livelihood, dependence and love.
