THE WEIGHT OF IT ALL centers around Lyndsey Watkins, a happily married, well to do mother of two, a nationally ranked triathlete. Lyndsey appears to have the perfect life until one day when she is kidnapped. Her family and friends think her dead, and it is a shock to everyone when ten months after she goes missing, she is found, hog-tied, dressed in a pig costume, 187 pounds heavier than when she was taken. Of course, everyone wants to know “WHY?” Why would anyone do this to her?
THE WEIGHT OF IT ALL deals with the issues of bullying, our society’s obsession with physical appearance, and one fractured family’s struggle to become whole.
