This searing documentary looks at the obsession of women with the size and the shape of their bodies. Under the coercive power of consumerism and the mass media, women have come to view their bodies as marketable objects and to judge them according to unrealistic standards.

Using a dramatic visual approach, the film explores the complex causes that lie at the heart of this paradox
