NICE PEOPLE tells the story of Cathlyn. Cathlyn is a promising ballet dancer who battles the distorted idea of how she sees her body. Suffering from Body Dysmorphic Disorder, Cathlyn receives a package from her parents with a cassette tape that ultimately forces her to confront her life-long battle with who she truly is, who her parents want her to be, and how she will to continue to punish herself for having an "ugly fat body."
