The Hunter family is dominated by endless, extreme dieting, due to mother's frustration over a fat-making upbringing by her parents. One daughter rebels to have a life as a nurse, but feels guilty. Then her perfect-considered sister, a workaholic law student, has to be interned for an eating disorder. After mother resists therapy, demanding her release home, a fatal incident occurs and the parents' marriage is wrecked. The surviving sister is consumed by guilty feelings, like the mother, and breaks up her relationship with a young doctor at the clinic, yet lets her grandfather set up dates with his buddy's grandson Charlie, a lawyer.
It's hard to feel normal when you are trying to be perfect.
