She allowed cameras into her life to share what it is like to be a woman, specially one who relies on her appearance to make a living, and to lose one’s hair. She shared her tears, her pain and her triumphs. And she put them all together into one film to show the world how she learned that life is not about the hair on your head, it is about the lessons you learn the friends you find and the difference you can make.
