Videos of cosmetic procedures are common online marketing tools and frequently posted on social media. What none of the videos provide is any emotional context for the people (mostly women) getting the treatments. Whether these women are empowered or controlled with regard to their image is open to interpretation but, in the film, I want the viewer to experience emotional context as they sit beside a woman actually undergoing the procedure.
