In Chengdu, China, 18-year-old Christine enters a competition for free plastic surgery, aiming to become more “Western.” After winning the competition she must make life-altering decisions that will affect her future forever. This personal, yet globally relevant film takes a cinéma vérité look into the heart of China asking: what does it mean to want to look “Western”?
