Synopsis
In an awkward attempt to meet the ideal western standards of beauty, Julie, a 16-year-old Korean-Canadian, obsesses about double eyelid surgery. Her tomboy sister Jean is fascinated yet repulsed by her older sister's serious body-image issues. Neither of them can come to any entirely comfortable sort of compromise on the right way to love each other, or themselves.
