His out of work father and his OFW mother leave him to adhere to the guidance of his grandmother who loves to cook and who loves to remind him that "to be fat is to be healthy, and to be healthy is to be fat".

He may not look the part, but Filemon learns about heroism in the most unexpected way. He becomes the hero not only to his family and friends, but also to himself.

Heartwarming, feel-good movie with stellar acting performances!  Viewers will easily warm up to this film as it tackles issues like youth, young love, weight problems and even parental issues, among others.  The lead star Filemon has a weight problem, made worse because his doting grandma wants him to eat, for him to be "healthy". He also has another concern, winning the heart of his ladylove. Ignacio is surprisingly not a mainstream star but his acting portrayal was impressive. A very strong cast support is in place, starting with the grandma who's played by Nanette Inventor, veteran actress and comedienne. Mainstream stars like Smokey Manaloto, Giselle Sanchez and young stars like Miles Ocampo who plays Filemon's love interest complete the stellar cast of this hilarious movie that  conveys the message of loving others and of oneself as well as the importance of partaking healthy food. Worth checking out!
