45 kilograms overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope. Tipping the scales at 140 kg, Joe saw a path laid out before him that wouldn't end well. FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicle's Joe's personal mission to regain his health. With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long-term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body's ability to heal itself. He trades the junk food and hits the road with juicer in tow, vowing to only drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for 60 days.
Across almost 5,000 kilometers Joe has one goal in mind: to get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle. While talking to more than 500 Americans about food, health and longevity, it's at a truck stop in Arizona where Joe meets a truck driver who suffers from the same rare condition. Phil Staples is morbidly obese weighing in at 194 kgs; a cheeseburger away from a heart attack. As Joe is reclaiming his life, Phil begins his own epic journey to get well. What emerges is nothing short of amazing - an inspiring tale of healing and human connection.
