Discussion with film subject Frank Ferrante to follow
At age 54, Frank Ferrante weighs 290 pounds and has contracted Hepatitis C after a lifetime of drug and alcohol abuse. He's on multiple medications, undergoing chemo, and drinks ten espressos a day. At Café Gratitude, a raw food café in San Francisco, Frank meets Ryland, the café's manager, who asks, “What is one thing you'd like to do before you die?” Frank answers, “I want to fall in love one more time, but with a body like this, no one will love me, because I don't love myself.” Ryland, his brother Cary, and best friend Conor take this as a challenge to help Frank address his weight, health, relationships, and learn to love himself in just 42 days.
“Seeing this film is an invitation for your heart to open.”
– Woody Harrelson
