An oversized and happy girl. A man leading a double life. A best friend that always saves the day. What will happen when these three souls were intertwined into one love triangle. A story that surfaces the true meaning of friendship and sweet revenge at its best.
Sofia, an oversized girl will share her story. You may have guessed it; she was betrayed by Ana – her best friend. The one who will come to her defense when the boys feed on her size and weight. Now, Sofia is facing her ‘closest’ enemy. The only ‘wall’ that separates her from the cruel world. The one that knows her boyfriend as San Kok.
Far from confronting it, she leads them to end the story her way. Watch her as she takes her husband-to-be and her best friend to a journey of THEIR lifetime. A story that deals with insecurities, love & betrayal that could hit on anyone in any form, regardless of size, age, gender, lineage and sexual preferences.
