Mitch Green graduated from college as a journalist without a job. He finally lands a ten-week summer position at New York's The Daily Flash. As a condition for making the job permanant, Editor Perry Petro instructs Mitch to sbmit an investigative report on a topic of extraordinary interest to the paper's readership. Mitch researches fat and thin peoples' reactions to weight loss and weight gain, and how normal-weight people maintain their weight without significant change. Ingeniously Mitch hires an unlikely dream team of volunteers that include Shirley, a musician, Kim, a high-tech publisher; Leslie, an industrial design student; Marcello, an entertainment journalist; Mr.Bayley, an university professor; Dr. Scott, a physician,etc. The unusual experiment begins with these unusual participants. Being of normal weight Mitch participates by gaining as much weight as possible in the first five weeks, and losing that weight in the remaining five weeks. In addition to the experiment's unexpected findings, Mitch and all the participants find love and wealth. Mitch gets that permanent job.
