Dedicated to expressing the drive and spirit of Asian women. It is a story of self-discovery …. As it unfolds one begins to question oneself….
What would I have done ?
The story of a beautiful Indian woman who is flat-chested and fails to satisfy the needs of her husbands sexual fantasy. A sculptors concept of the ideal beauty clashes with the actual image of the real-life woman. The story celebrates the beauty of the everyday woman, beautiful, really beautiful in all her imperfections.
