30 years old. 105 kilograms. Ying-juan was dealt a bad hand. She works at her mother’s childcare center and has a harder time fitting in than a T-Rex in a petting zoo, until she meets WU, a deliveryman who bears a checkered past underneath his radiant smile. Encouraged by WU, Ying-juan finally decides to lose weight. Just when things are getting on the right track, devastatingly, Ying-juan’s passion for cooking seems to be fading away due to her over-aggressive diet…
