The film follows one girl on her journey from discovery to acceptance of her Alopecia Areata (immune related hair loss.) Before she had the condition Georgia worked as a hair model, actress and comedian and relied heavily on her appearance. When she lost her hair she was forced to completely reassess the life she had chosen for herself. We go with her from doctor to doctor trying to find a cure, which she soon discovers doesn't exist. We cry and laugh with her as she comes to terms with the fact that right now her only choice is acceptance. Once she makes this choice her world turns into the world she had always hoped for â€" one of sharing, giving back and filled with amazing children. At the end of the film Georgia realizes that whether she has hair or not doesn't matter at all. The difference she can make in other people's lives by being loud and proud about her Alopecia Areata is a bigger gift than anything she could ever hope for.Although this is a documentary about a medical condition it is full of comedy and lightness; and Georgia's approach to her condition prevents the audience from taking it, or her, too seriously.The film features appearances by Alopecians of all ages, a number of comedians, two doctors who work with alopecia areata every day of their lives, a wig maker and a stylist, Georgia's family and friends and a puppet who has alopecia areata.
