U.S.A. / 2009 / 99 mins.
Synopsis: Lucy (Missi Pyle) has battled obesity her entire life and with the ‘little time she has left,” she wants to spend a final weekend together with her best college friends like once remembered.
Upon arriving, Lucy’s friends soon discover that, Lucy isn’t actually dying. On the flip side, Lucy soon realizes her friends are now a far cry from the “Pretty and Perfect” friends whom she had remembered and that her final wish wasn’t the best of ideas after all.
