How to achieve and maintain a healthy weight in a country where one in three children live their lives overweight?

This thought-provoking documentary follows four young Americans from diverse backgrounds – Davion (12), Emily (13), Moy (11), and KeAnna (13) – as they deal with everyday struggles while also learning how to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Facing both bullying and health-related challenges, the four protagonists look to their friends, family, educators, and even a specialized weight-loss school for help. Their loved ones, however, aren't always ready to change their own long-established behaviours, and some unwittingly hamper the young people's success. With one in three American children living their lives overweight, will Davion, Emily, Moy and KeAnna be able to achieve self-acceptance and a healthy lifestyle despite the obstacles in their way?
