When Effie met Minas, a handsome cadet in the navy, she fell head over heels in love with him and did everything she could in order to become his wife. And, when she succeeded, she believed that she was now the happiest woman in the world. Twenty years later, however, her marriage has been tested through and through by her husband’s infidelities, who misses no chance to disparage her. And so, too weak to get up and leave him, she closes herself off in her house and takes on her fridge as her… lover. With the passing of the years, the once slim and slender girl becomes an overweight, unkempt for woman about whom not even her two teenage children don’t take into account. Having lost any last scrap of self-esteem and on the verge of depression, a minor accident leads her, in the midst of summer, to a physiatrist’s clinic while her family shamelessly abandons her to go and enjoy their holiday. The fact that no-one seems to care the slightest about her as well as her having to strip before the physiatrist, an especially charming young man, make her feel so ugly that she decides that she’s had enough. She empties the fridge of all its goodies and decides to lose the weight she’s put on by going on a strict diet. No-one, however, can expect the rapid developments that will follow and which will not only find her family unprepared, but also herself…
