The Story

WEIGHTLESS is the story of Clara, a shy compulsive eater in a nowhere job at a nursing home, and Davey, the feisty nursing home patient who teaches her to dive into life headfirst.

The film was written and directed by Amy Wendel and produced by Janet McIntyre.  It stars Moira Boag and Jan Burrell, and features the Padded Lilies, a self-described fat women's synchronized swimming team.
