Chubby Tina thinks she couldn’t hate herself any more than she already does, when she overhears her skinny mother telling a friend, “We’re going to be stuck with Tina forever. No guy is ever going to want her.”
Even though it’s her freshman year in college, she vows to quit school and run away.
That is, until her father’s best friend catches her going out the door in the middle of the night with a suitcase.
Tina finally, tearfully, confesses, and is surprised by his insight and perspective—and how willing he is to show her just how beautiful and loveable he thinks she really is.
