With the anti-bullying 'Wait It Out' campaign and his upcoming book on the same subject, Matt Porte has positioned himself to become the current poster child for love, acceptance and tolerance. When his best friend sets him up on a blind date with a recently out of the closet bully from Matt's past, his idea of what it means to be a bully and victim are tossed out the closet. As he falls deeper in love, and the launch of his new book approaches, Matt realizes that while he may indeed be an expert on ‘overcoming bullying,’ he’s also a pretty skilled bully himself.
A traditional, sexy romantic comedy with a ‘non-traditional’ twist, Wait It Out confronts issues of validation versus achievement, youth versus wisdom and most importantly, fat versus skinny-fat.
Wait It Out will take 20 days to shoot. Nearly all of the principal photography will take place in New York City.
