Price Of Beauty

The film explores some of the different ways in which people go about altering their appearance in order to be more attractive or to fit in. Two young women discuss their own experiences with body modification: one considers getting a tattoo to cover up a scar at her father's urging, the other decides to leave her hair natural, curly and short despite her mother's insistence that she use relaxers to have straight hair.
