An Almodóvar-esque story about a beautician who performs illegal cosmetic treatment on the Philippine drag queens and transwomen. In the colorful world of beauty pageants where being pretty is not just an aesthetic ideal but also a very real way of earning a living along with social respect, a perfect face is worth any price. This vivid, yet touching story combines a criminal plot with insightful social observations. The tragicomic picture of the glittering world of transsexual women is also an apt comment on the absurdities of contemporary global culture and its obsessive interest in appearance.
