OVERVIEW

    Ger Gallagher 

  • Synopsis

    Easi-Slim's new member Pam McGowan has it all. A fabulous home, two perfect kids and a successful husband. Having lost four stone, Pam is only attending meetings to maintain her svelte figure. Breda has been struggling with her weight and is thinking about abandoning the diet - until Pam takes her in hand and power walks her into a new way of life. Breda becomes a disciple of the high-priestess of low-carbs and is bowled over by just how fantastic Pam really is. Both women open up to one another as they pound the pavements every evening. However, when Pam's mask begins to slip, Breda is reminded that things aren't always what they appear to be.
