Daryl Lucas is a fat, happily married soft-drink salesman living on the NSW Central Coast, until the day he walks in on his cheating cougar wife and her young Pilates instructor. 

While he plots to divorce her, she arranges for Daryl to be kidnapped by a group of disparate lunatics calling themselves 'Feedem Fighters'. Inspired by shows like Extreme Makeover and The Biggest Loser, these calorie terrorists kidnap fatties and keep them captive in a soundproof room for three months, forcing them to lose weight. 

Can Daryl convince them he's only being held so his wife can drain his accounts and run off with her Pilates instructor?

Feedem Fighters is a seemingly innocuous comedy but below the waistline it canvasses issues and themes that touch the public's collective soul in the perplexing duality of this image-obsessed/food-obsessed society we now find ourselves in.
