Sponsored by U.S.-based cosmetic companies, a delegation of American volunteers embarks on an ambitious mission to start Afghanistan’s very first Western-style beautician school after the fall of the Taliban. Keen to help Afghan women see themselves and others in a new, liberated light, these outgoing but often blundering Americans sometimes find themselves in conflict with their students, who struggle to move past their deep-rooted ideas of modesty and internalized gender inequality as they strive to learn how to construct beauty by Western standards.
