The documentary will have its world premiere on Saturday, June 15.

Welcome to the Big Beautiful Women (BBW) club.

All of Me, a documentary by Alexandra Lescaze, chronicles the Texas-based group of women who celebrate being overweight. While they've bonded over their weight and the men who love them the way they are, the BBW begins to break apart when some women consider getting surgery to shed the pounds.

The film, produced by Lescaze and Deborah Eve Lewis, will have its world premiere on Saturday, June 15, during the Los Angeles Film Festival.

Here, The Hollywood Reporter host an exclusive clip from the project.

In the video, we meet Judy, who has dealt with being overweight her whole life.

At the age of 40, Judy joins an online BBW group in order to look for a husband. She becomes very social in the group and meets men who are interested in women that look like her.

"I was not going to let being overweight determine what I did in my life," she says.

The Los Angeles Film Festival runs June 13-23.
