Shy 14-year-old Duncan goes on summer vacation with his mother, her overbearing boyfriend, and her boyfriend's daughter. Having a rough time fitting in, Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen, manager of the Water Wizz water park.
A con artist moves her son to a conservative neighborhood in Oklahoma in an effort to build a better future, but it doesn't take long for her past to catch up with her, and for her son's behavior to cause problems of its own.
Nathanael Patrick has problems. His mother claims to perform miracles, mice are drinking from his bedroom water feature, and he has to strap on a mask to sleep at night. But none of that compares to the "friends" around him, each one more disabled than the last.
Follow this swinging, overweight human monster as he rolls through life, startling and annoying all those that cross his giant path.
It's not only one of the most brilliant films of the last decade, it's also based on a true story. Being Nathan, to me, would be a fat worse than death.
