Disfigured is a drama about Lydia (Deidra Edwards), an obese woman who is having trouble fitting into the world due to the size of her body. A member of the Fat Acceptance Group, she takes solace in the comfort of those who are similar to her, but she can't seem to shake the feeling that something is missing in her life. She meets a woman named Darcy (Staci Lawrence), who also happens to struggle with the connotations of her appearance. Darcy has an eating disorder which causes her to rarely nourish herself and she is incredibly skinny. Lydia and Darcy are at ends with each other when they first meet. While it may seem like the two have much in common, they soon form a lasting and caring relationship with each other, as they both struggle to fit into the norms of a society that judges them based on their appearance.
