From the pen of one of Norway's youngest and most exciting talents comes Fatso, this is an outrageous, absorbing and moving tale of fast food, sex, love and redemption. Rino is fat, ambitionless and a 34-year-old virgin. He is also obsessed with sex. Living in a flat owned by his father, he lacks the necessary social skills and charm to reverse his pathetic situation. Filled with self-loathing, Rino is resigned to a life of loneliness and cheeseburgers, until fate steps in to turn his life upside down. When his father decides to let out one of the rooms in his apartment to a young woman named Maria, Rino is forced to re-enter the human stratosphere. What follows is the development of a relationship between Rino and Maria that is complex, rewarding and brutally human; a relationship that forces Rino to live again.
