"I married for money. My father said 'Here's fifty bucks, Dottie, now get out of my sight.' "
Dottie Engels, comedienne extraordinaire, does her schtick on late-night TV, her routines centered on -- or revolving around -- her considerable girth. Her two daughters live on the periphery of her glittery life, seeing her in the silvery light of the television screen more often than they do at home.
Opal, small, pretty, is destined for happiness; Erica is overweight and filled with self-loathing. But when Dottie's ratings begin to slide, it will take both her daughters to save Dottie from herself.
