Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Dreamy and bittersweet, this Italian comedy chronicles the fantasies of an overweight dreamer. All her life the rotund and thirtyish Isotta has had a propensity for day dreams. Born too thin, her overprotective mother too soon fattened her up, thereby insuring a life of obesity for her daughter. When not dreaming away her days or working at a factory, Isotta deals with her father's compulsive gambling habit and hangs out with her friends Luisa and Caterina. One day, Isotta meets a handsome Greek salesman and they become friends. Things are fine until she misinterprets his friendship for something else.
