FAT PIG tells the story of Tom, a stereotypical professional in a large city, who falls for a very plus-size librarian named Helen. Tom is instantly taken with Helen’s brash acceptance of the way people see her and her honesty. I mean why wouldn’t he be taken with Helen? She’s smart, she’s pretty, and she has a great sense of humor. A couple of weeks after Tom and Helen begin dating, Carter, Tom’s best friend, starts to notice the signs of Tom having a new girlfriend. He obnoxiously pesters Tom for information about the new girl and in order to get it mentions it in front of Jeannie, a woman from accounting, who has been seeing Tom on-and-off for a while, and despite what Tom’s coworkers think he continues to date Helen until things take a turn. Does Tom follow his heart or does he give in to his coworkers and what society promotes. (
