Durch dick und dünn

Through Thick and Thin

Margareta Heinrich
Eva, a successful publicity executive, has weight problems. In spite of diets and starvation cures, she is overcome frequently by attacks of compulsive eating so that all resolutions and efforts to reduce are of no avail. Her co-workers and her friends do nothing to help her, in fact, they make fun of her. As a result, Eve becomes more and more frustrated. Her new friend, Thomas, does his best to pep her up but it doesn't help her self-esteem. Finally, after she has broken her date with Thomas because she can't find the right dress to wear, she flies into a rage and throws her dresses and scale through a closed window... She probably hasn't done anything to lose weight with this "act of self-liberation" but she's on her way to feeling much better.
