Antonio Farfán is a FAT, BALD, SHORT MAN. A 46-year-old lonesome virgin, he is convinced his failures in life are due to his unfortunate looks; yet he is complacent and too shy to do anything about it. As nearly the only uncorrupt employee in the notary office he works at, he remains a constant target of teasing and bullying by his co-workers. Even his brother views him as a pushover, manipulating and mooching off him to the point of emotional abuse. But when Antonio's doppelganger takes over as the new boss, things begin to change around the office, and Antonio quickly finds out he may have a new friend. Meanwhile, he entertainingly, almost accidentally, joins the self-improvement group, "The Being Foundation," in which he learns to confront his fears and gain the confidence he needs to regain control of his own life. A crowd-pleaser of a film, FAT, BALD, SHORT MAN is an irresistibly heartwarming story propelled by innovative animation. (In Spanish with subtitles) – M.M.
