Summary
This unique and powerful film provides incredible insight into the sad world of compulsive overeating and the turmoil of addictive behavior. Filmmaker John Spellos follows his mother through a five-month period as she struggles to change her eating habits and deal with the psychological issues that have brought her to obesity. Family and friends share stories and examine their own roles in the development of her eating disorder and how their lives have been affected. The candor of all the film's participants result in many poignant moments that will inevitable change the way we look at obese people. This is a population that suffers from an addiction just as debilitating and rampant as alcohol and drug abuse, yet is more often than not, met with insensitive jokes rather than the much-needed support they so desperately seek. This is an essential film to all human service professionals
