Description

Beauty is more than skin deep, and these women know it.  One Monday a month, sisters Rachel and Cynthia open their Long Island beauty salon to women living with cancer.  The sisters bring out the femininity and self regard of women who fear they've lost it all to the disease.  Amid transformations in relationships with family and friends, the women find their true beauty and strength together.
