Desperately Hungry Housewives

Large Programme Image


We gain rare insight into the highly deceptive and private world of women’s dysfunctional relationship with food. Once considered an illness affecting teenage girls, anorexia and bulimia are now on the increase among older women as they succumbing to eating disorders. Following a group of successful and intelligent women who seem to have it all, we watch them trying to appear “normal,” when behind closed doors they are secretly starving themselves.
