Storyline

In 20 years, nose jobs in Iran have gone from 10,000 per year to 60,000 or 70,000. This film asks why. Oskouei talks to high school students, women, men, doctors, nurses, clerics, actors, scholars, and a filmmaker about why they think Iran is the "nose job capital of the world." People have them to attract a mate, to reduce teasing, to gain self-confidence, or to get ahead at work. Some reject it as just fashion or superficial. A filmmaker describes the difficulty of casting historical films because all the actresses have nose jobs. Clerics lament the decline of values and leadership. A post-operative youth groans. Doctors discuss their fees. Polka dots and moonbeams. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>
