Tender

Summary
Carolanne wanted a perfect wedding, a perfect husband, a perfect family. She carefully performs her own roles - gal pal, bestie, girlfriend, wife, and expectant mother - and manipulates those around her to try and get the results she wants. Her desire to control the uncontrollable ultimately becomes her undoing. When things don't go her way, she exerts dominance over the one thing she does have total control over: her body; until that "betrays" her. After suffering a horrible loss, Carolanne spirals into a literal, all-consuming delusion causing her body to produce symptoms of a hysterical pregnancy - as a result of her slicing off bits of her own flesh and eating them
