Synopsis by Alice Day
The world of the compulsive overeater can be filled with deception, as the individual feels a continual craving for food to the point of hiding it to eat in secret. The woman featured in Heavy Load has denied that there is a problem, and is unaware that her son has begun to exhibit the same tendencies. Her brother is recovering from his compulsive habits, and is ready to give support as soon as she recognizes that she has a severe addiction to food. Her hope lies in the support group that she joins, as she starts on the road to better health and a sensible eating regimen.
