How does stuffing your face with as much food as possible in 10 minutes sound? For competitive eaters like Pat "Deep Dish" Bertoletti, Brad “The Lunatic” Sciullo and six-time Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog-Eating Contest winner Takeru Kobayashi, it sounds like a regular day. Following a contract dispute with Major League Eating, the organization that holds a monopoly on the sport, Kobayashi was banned from their events, keeping him from entering hundreds of competitions in the United States. This film shows his struggles to rebuild his tarnished reputation and prove once and for all that he is the best competitive eater in the world. The first documentary of its kind, Hungry follows the jaw-dropping lives of some of America’s top competitive eaters who put their lives, health, and relationships on the line for the chance to be crowned number one. From chugging gallons of water to eating an entire pizza in one sitting, there is nothing these competitors won’t eat to be able to call themselves champions. And while some might question the world of competitive eating, for these men it is both a sport and a community of friends.
