A relationship begins between an overweight man, David, who is desperate to lose weight and change himself and a "fit" man who he crosses paths with at a park during the Covid19 pandemic during his routined government-approved workout. David begins to receive flirtatious messages from the fit guy hidden in the park. He becomes even more determined to lose weight and self sabotages the situation when he changes himself, as he believes the fit man couldn't like or desire someone like himself as he was.
