Baby fat is what her mother’s friends call it. They say Sara’s just healthy and will outgrow it. When Sara is 8, she weighs 142. At 15, 265. At her high school graduation 435. At 24 Sara’s bedridden and weighs over 800 pounds. Her mother spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on doctors trying to gain control of Sara’s weight. Nothing works. Then Sara’s mother, a single parent, discovers she’s terminally ill. She decides she needs someone to take care of Sara 24/7 after she’s dead. Someone motivated who can also manage the $100 million estate Sara will inherit from her mother. She decides a young attorney from Chicago, Brandon Parrish would work out just fine. Elaine also has other plans for Brandon.
Brandon is an estate attorney who sees himself as an actor in Hollywood. When Sara’s mother approaches him with an offer to take care of her daughter after she’s dead Brandon scoffs at the idea. But he then learns he will make $250,000 every year Sara lives and a $1 million bonus on each 4 year anniversary of Sara’s life. Brandon takes the deal. He enlists the help of a former frat brother now a physician and they come up with a medical plan to keep Sara alive. It’s called a coma. It works. Sara loses weight. As she does she transforms from an amorphous mound of flesh into a human being, into a woman, into an extremely attractive woman who aided by plastic surgery and an unlimited wardrobe budget, becomes a stunning woman. Brandon falls in love with the woman in the coma. When Sara awakens from the coma 10 years later, she has dreams of someone coming to her in the darkness. She can feel a touch, pain and the scent of someone. But are they dreams? When she learns the truth she has plans of her own.
