This time-lapse film was created for the Disposable Film Festival Health Competition 2011. It chronicles an evening in early September 2011 during which a beautiful woman visits her very good friend and hairdresser for a makeover session.

The film begins by revealing that the woman is suffering from a serious illness. The viewer is shocked to learn about the real purpose of the visit. Clearly, this woman’s view of herself will never be quite the same again.
