Sixteen young people who are unhappy with their physical appearance and want to do something about it are the stars of this documentary, which is glued together from their video diaries. Their problems range from alopecia to excess weight, from facial scars to a flat chest. What they share is the bravery to spill out their emotions in a way others with similar body confidence issues might only do when they’re alone. Watching this, they won’t be alone any more.


Following 30 people who are unhappy with their bodies as they attempt to transform themselves in six months. Using hand-held cameras, they document their quest for perfection, from extreme weight-loss surgery, to breast enhancements and hair transplants. The film reveals the story of a body-obsessed Britain through a rollercoaster ride of anxiety, emotion, excitement and pressure.
