What do you do when you think you look good and your mother is convinced what you need more than anything else is a nose job?
MY NOSE is a personal documentary that explores my mother's preoccupation with my nose. Humor is the driving emotion behind MY NOSE. By exploring my bumpy relationship with my mother it reveals a bigger story: what drives many people to plastic surgery?
