Three women. A girl goes to contest of a modelling agency;she succeeds, and will become one of the faces on the magazine covers. The second woman, a sexworker, doesn't want to accept that in the time scale, her body is but a passing shape. She wants to have back her firm breast and uses all her savings to pay for plastic surgery. The third woman loses the fight with her body. From all sides she hears critiques about her body s imperfection: she is fat and therefore sick and ugly. Once she thinks she tried all te possibilities to fight her obesity, there appears a new, certainly efficient way promising her to win.
