An age-obsessed daughter of a plastic surgeon takes a journey through America â€™s $60 Billion a year anti-aging world. In this Alice-In-Wonderland tale, the filmmaker spends two years traveling across the country visiting doctors, experts and the lives of a cross section of characters from Minnesota to Texas whoâ€™ve gone to varying lengths to â€œbeat the clock,â€ painting a funny, but troubling portrait of a country that desperately needs to stay young. Armed with wry humor, one wonders throughout this highly personal journey if the filmmaker herself hasnâ€™t been pulled in by the obsession of youth.
