From the directors of The Farewell Party and A Matter of Size, Flawless is a moving and humorous tale of self-discovery and friendship. As the school prom nears, three best friends decide to accept a dangerous offer that will enable them to undergo plastic surgery abroad. On their journey to physical perfection, however, the girls find out that there is more to life than looks. Flawless brilliantly draws on American teen movies (think Grease, Clueless or Mean Girls) while touching sensitively on current issues such as gender transition and peer pressure in the social media age.
