The new documentary Bite Size will have you rooting for four brave kids.

In this exclusive trailer, the film’s stars – Keanna, 13, Davion, 12, Moy, 11, and Emily, 13 – get candid about their struggles to lose weight and the challenges they’ve faced along the way.

“I want my diabetes to go away so I can do what everybody else can do,” says football player Davion.

The kids are “cute but conflicted, funny yet flawed,” director Corbin Billings tells PEOPLE. “For them, the mission is not simply to lose weight, but to learn to love themselves to change their lifestyle for a healthier, happier future.”

“They just hate me because of who I am,” says Davion, who is shown facing locker-room bullies. ” ‘Oh, he’s fat.’ If I can’t do it, I’m still gonna try.”

Bite Size will be released on VOD on March 10.
