The World’s Fattest Man:10 Years On

This unique documentary, filmed over 11 years, charts how Paul Mason from Ipswich took his life to the extreme, reaching nearly 80 stone as his food addiction became out of control. While surgeons try to fix his body as his weight is on a rollercoaster, the question needs to be asked: is the real battle is in his mind? Can therapy provide an answer to his compulsive eating? At last, Paul, once the world’s fattest man, is going to face his demons in order to tackle the addiction which has devastated his life.
