The storyteller´s family is into plastic surgery and their surgeon is the storyteller´s own brother. He has operated 24 family members so far. The film is about the relations within the family and the familymembers´ relation to their own bodies, to the pain, physical, psychological and metaphysical, due to the serial operations.
Beauty Refugee is a black-humorous portrait of a family in its quest for happiness that is never achieved, where values such as hard work and love stand in contrast to appearance fixation.
