Examine issues of body image along with four women anticipating surgery. The four characters represent a wide range of body types, yet all expect liposuction to bring them happiness. Through monologues, short scenes, and childhood rhymes, the women share both destructive and empowering memories from their childhood and their relationships with the opposite sex. This hilarious and challenging social commentary offers a thought-provoking glimpse into the consequences of trying to conform to societys distorted image of beauty.
