An Air Force nurse about to leave the service is badly disfigured about her face in a car accident in which she also loses her baby. Her husband cannot deal with her disfigurement and she goes through a depression wondering why she was kept alive. The drunk driver who ploughed into her car is let off with a very lenient punishment, too. A doctor at the hospital sees potential in reconstructing this nurse's face. This doctor extends her enlistment so this nurse will be eligible for medical treatment covered by the armed forces over the entire course of the reconstructive surgeries. In the course of the reconstruction, the doctor and the nurse must overcome several obstacles. These range from the personal, where the nurse wonders if the doctor is only doing this for his own fame, to the bureaucracy, which has problems with the use of labial tissue from the vaginal area to reconstruct the nurse's lips.

I saw this movie way back when it was first released on TV in 1984, and I have wanted a copy of it ever since we got our first VCR. This movie really stayed with me, and I enjoyed it SO much. The story line was excellent, and I was moved by the trauma, the kindness of this doctor, and the way things unfolded.
In the movie, this woman who is horribly disfigured experiences rejection, heart break and physical torture as well as mental. She is no longer beautiful, and her companion has left her. She is at the end of her rope when a professional and very handsome doctor takes an interest in her. You can almost feel her pain.
I highly recommend it and must have a copy!
