Half Ton Man tells the story of American Patrick Deuel, a morbidly obese man who is literally eating himself to death.
Weighing in at 76 stone, Patrick was the world’s largest man until he was forced to undergo a life saving gastric bypass. Despite all the effort and money that has gone into his treatment, Patrick refuses to stop eating, knowing he will die if he continues. The film will follow the story of Patrick and his struggle to overcome his compulsion for food.
This documentary also explains the science behind human obesity and the extreme physical stresses that being on the limits of obesity places on an individual, and on the people attempting to care for them.
