This chilling tale is about a small group of sufferers from obesity, who accept a free offer from a foreign clinic to cure their addiction permanently. They arrive apprehensively at the clinic after a long unpleasant trip and meet with the doctor who is to perform the surgery. But how can it all be for free? What is the price if it is not, and who benefits?
