Summary:
Documentary about 17-year-old Jess Lee, who was born with a facial disfigurement, a symptom of a condition called Apert Syndrome. Unhappy with her features she had major surgery, which completely transformed the way she looks, yet she still wants more surgery. Jess goes on a journey to find out why she feels so compelled to change her face, meeting a variety of women who have different perceptions of beauty - from a model who hates being beautiful to a cosmetic surgery aficionado who believes good looks give you power. She also meets other young people with disfigurements who have adopted coping mechanisms to deal with society's prejudices.
