  • Overview
    Fat Pig tells us the story of Tom, a thirty-something, in shape, stereotypical professional in a large city, who falls for a very plus-size librarian named Helen. They meet in a crowded cafeteria at lunchtime and get to talking. Tom is taken with her brash acceptance of the way people see her and her honesty. He asks her for her number and they start to date. A couple weeks Carter, Tom’s best friend, starts to notice the signs of Tom having a new girlfriend. Tom and Helen fall more in love, then Helen is offered a job in another town. When she asks to meet his friends he is hesitant and arranges a barbque during which he keeps her secluded from everyone. She gives him an ultimatum,to accept all of her, and defend her to his friends. He replies that he cannot handle it and that she should take the job-both are left broken hearted.
