Undercover FBI agent Gracie Hart shows no signs of having any femininity in her demeanor or appearance. Generally a bright and capable agent, she is in trouble at work when she makes an error in judgment in a case which results in a near disaster. As such, one of her by-the-books colleagues, Eric Matthews, who has never shown any inclination of thinking outside the box, is assigned to lead the high profile case of a terrorist coined The Citizen instead of her, while she is facing possible disciplinary action.

Her eating habits was riotous and (as we all knew) her "transformation" was stunning--kind of proving Hollywood is full of NORMAL looking ladies that have great make-up artists and breast boosters. But there was something different here with Sandra. Exiting her "changing hanger" she showed a beautiful shape--proving women (REAL looking women) ARE beautiful. I never knew Sandra had shape?
