Summary An experimental documentary film informed by the intersection of the gay male body aesthetic and childhood abuse circa 1960s. Incorporating dark, distant memories, and recent invasive procedures, the film draws on the personal experience of one of its makers: growing up fat, losing huge amounts of weight, being bulimic and anorexic, having plastic surgery, these all reflect the outward signs of Tom's relationship to his flesh, his internal self-perception and external self imaging
