Never Perfect is a feature-length documentary that explores the popularity of cosmetic surgery, the historical, cultural and social issues that influence body image and self-perception, and one woman’s complex journey of self-discovery that shifts not only how she defines herself as an Asian American woman, but as a human being. More specifically, Never Perfect explores the complex journey of a young Vietnamese American woman’s struggle with popular perceptions of beauty and body image as she fights the stigma of racial self-hatred in her decision to undergo cosmetic surgery.
