I Want to Change My Body (1 x 60′) – Diving beneath the surface of Britain’s body confidence crisis, this film follows up to 30 young people aged 16 to 25 who are unhappy with their appearance as they go on a personal quest to transform their bodies with the hope that the changes will make them happier.
With each of the young people using a handheld camera, the diverse characters from across Britain will personally film their own extraordinary journeys over six months. From extreme weight loss surgery to hair transplant surgery, they will take us with them on the roller-coaster ride of anxiety, emotion, excitement and pressure they experience on their quest for perfection. This is the real story of body-obsessed Britain, told through their eyes.
