A magical and comedic take on modern love, the power of friendship, and the allure of disguise.

Meet the knights of Creation, a group of artistic friends struggling with society's standards of beauty. Barb, a stunningly beautiful costume designer, chooses to don a fat suit in hopes that it will help her meet the man of her dreams--a man who can see beyond her looks. Lily, Barbs brilliantly talented unfortunate-looking musician friend, goes to fantastic lengths to attract the shallow man she loves. Penelope, neither beautiful nor talented, makes her living by selling hideous clay pots after convincing customers they've broken them.
