Meet Greta.

She's flawed.

She's hiding so much behind her big smile she's forgotten who she is.

But Greta is about to discover that the key to being happy isbeing yourself.

Greta Gale has played the part of the funny fat one her entire life, hiding her insecurities behind a big smile. But size doesn't matter when you can laugh at yourself, right?

But Greta is about to discover that sometimes the best moments in life come when it's all gone a bit pear-shaped
