A bullied, lonely obese teenager everyone calls "Butter" threatens to eat himself to death, live on the Internet, but it makes him popular. What happens when Butter reaches his suicide deadline? Starring: Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite), Mykelti Williamson (Forrest Gump), and Annabeth Gish (The Haunting of Hill House).

At the end of his rope, a lonely teenager whom everyone has nicknamed “Butter” decides to sacrifice himself by eating himself to death. Live streaming his demise over the Internet, this sax playing plus-sized student hopes to make his death a meaningful statement, filled with sympathy and understanding from his peers. Instead, he’s met with cheers of encouragement and excitement. This new attention confuses Butter. Do people actually care? Is he anything more than a novelty? A sideshow freak? As the deadline looms, Butter begins to rethink his plans. Will he go through with it? A comical look at the life of a larger-than-life teenager, Butter is a spectacularly written dramedy that will have lasting effects long after you watch it.— Aaron Garcia
