Anya’s (Aleksandra Bortich) life is consumed by two passions: her athletic boyfriend Zhenya, and food. However, it is because of her love of food that she gains weight and Zhenya leaves her for a more attractive young model, whilst Anya goes on a spiral of self-loathing. Luckily, she has her friends and enlists fellow food-lover Nick to help her lose weight in return for love and happiness. Anya is determined to get her boyfriend back and so she encounters all manner of strange obstacles and unexpected discoveries. This delightful romantic comedy is not only about the difficulties of losing weight, but of staying true to oneself with terrific, heartfelt performances by Bortich, Kulik, Gorbacheva and Shnurov. Unlike other makeover films, acclaimed comedy director Alexei Nuzhnyi presents a sophisticated view of the changes required to achieve happiness and they are far from skin deep.
