A compelling and intimate insight into the devastating reality of breast cancer, as seen through the eyes of nine female patients. Their individual stories and different points of view help demystify the deadly disease while painting poignant and often humorous intimate. The film depicts the process of learning and accepting the terrifying verdict, and details the complexities of every stage of the disease. By following the patients' spiritual transformations, we witness how their minds and personalities are affected by the whole experience on an emotional level. Candid and self-effacing, the women bare their souls as well as their scars. Regardless of their social status, looks and age, they manage to dismiss society's general perception of feminine beauty and adapt to living with their mutilated bodies while still maintaining strength, grace and pride.
