The paper mill that long propped up the economy of fictitious town Warton in the Mallee region of Victoria has been shut down, sending the town spiralling into an economic depression. When a well-meaning but totally unprepared tourism expert arrives to lend a hand, she discovers an unlikely business partnership in the three local women that make up the local chapter of Weight Watchers. Could the ladies’ plan (complete with a giant roadside attraction) really be the town’s salvation? This hilariously irreverent comedy celebrates determination, entrepreneurial spirit, and the love of a regional town under threat.


Terri – Weight Watchers Group leader, lived in Warton all her life 50+

Barb – Attends Weight Watchers Group, lived in Warton all her life 50+

Mary – Attends Weight Watchers Group, lived in Warton all her life 30 – 40ish – desperate to have a baby

Amanda – 40+ English accent, sophisticated with international PR experience
