Secret Society is the story of a woman who finds refuge from her daily life in a surprising place. Daisy (Charlotte Brittain) is a beautiful, heavyset woman who has a perfect life in the city with a devoted husband, Ken (Lee Ross), who dreams of making a fortune. However, once his dreams fail to come to fruition, the young couple find themselves plunged into debt and threatened with eviction from their home. To make ends meet, Daisy takes up work in a canning factory where the work is dull and tedious. Luckily for Daisy, her monotonous toil doesn't last long once she discovers that her fellow coworkers have created a secret sisterhood that trains female sumo wrestlers. With the ideal build and power to fit the bill, Daisy soon becomes one of their star fighters. With a newfound passion for life and an exciting new hobby, Daisy is left with only one thing standing in her way: her disapproving husband. Will Daisy give up her dreams of glory to suit him or will she abandon her quiet life for a future in wrestling? Secret Society is a charming comedy of strong women and their passion for life in the fighting ring.moreless
