would you do to look young again? Go behind the scenes
of the plastic surgery industry with this controversial
and unedited version of the film first seen on HBO
in the United States!
An age-obsessed daughter of a plastic surgeon takes
a journey through America’s $60 Billion a year
anti-aging world. In this Alice-In-Wonderland tale,
the filmmaker spends two years traveling across the
country visiting doctors, experts and the lives of
a cross-section of characters from Minnesota to Texas
who’ve gone to varying lengths to “beat
the clock,” painting a funny, but troubling portrait
of a country that desperately needs to stay young.
Armed with wry humor, one wonders throughout this highly
personal journey if the filmmaker herself hasn’t
been pulled in by the obsession of youth.
Who wants to go to a Botox party, being injected by
a dentist who carries around the toxin in a cooler?
Why do we pay so much money to distort our faces? Part
of the answer lies in our need to conform to what society
says is appropriate.”
Women want to stay young in order to be relevant, to
be seen as beautiful, to have access to society. It
is this fear of obsolescence that drives the industry,
which goes hand in hand with a fear of mortality.”
