By 15, Victor Rios was a highschool “dropout,” heroin dealer and Oakland gang member with multiple felony convictions and a death wish. But when a teacher’s quiet persistence, a mentor’s moral conviction and his best friend’s murder converge, Rios’ path took an unexpected turn. Now he studies, advocates for and connects with students whose similiar experiences have led to their being pushed out of school.
When Nahid, an Iranian exile, set out to make a documentary about Farah, the wife of the shah of Iran, she expected to encounter her opposite.

And can also heal it.

Coined the ‘Fat Letters’ by students, states around the country have begun mandating schools to send notification letters to kids whose body mass index (BMI) doesn’t fall within a narrowly “acceptable” range.

THE STUDENT BODY is a true underdog story of two brave girls who take a stand against government intrusion and hypocrisy while exploring the complex and controversial truths of the childhood obesity debate.
