It's dawn and there are already more than a hundred, apparently healthy women from all walks of life, waiting outside the Santa Casa de Misericordia, one of the oldest health institutes in Brazil. Why are they here? The queue goes on forever… They are waiting for the doors to open on the Plastic Surgery Unit of the well-known Professor Ivo Pitanguy, better known as the “Golden Scalpel”…

Edna, Jolanda and Teresa met there and tell the story of their four month wait, the appointments and shared dreams. What awaits them at the end of this long journey to happiness?
