Mads Matthiesen's debut feature stars real-life Danish muscleman Kim Kold as Dennis, a six-foot-seven-inch, tattooed 38-year-old bodybuilder who longs for romance. Dennis's 308 pounds of raw muscle have made him a world-famous super-heavyweight champion. Yet he still lives at home with his aged, domineering mother (who is about a third of his size), and is so painfully shy that he can't carry on a casual conversation with a woman, let alone develop a relationship. Following the lead of a newly married uncle who met his future bride in Thailand, Dennis travels to Pattaya, a hub of the sex tourism trade. Turned off by the brazen vulgarity of the scene, he frequents a local gym where he feels immediately at home. Dennis and the gym's widowed owner become friendly and then romantic. But when his new love comes to visit, will he be able to reveal his situation to his maniacally possessive mom?
