Event Details
Sunset Cosmetics An old woman named Soonie decides to get plastic surgery so her husband in heaven can recognize her. Painted Nails In "Painted Nails" we witness the American dream crumble when Van, a Vietnamese nail salon worker, discovers her health problems, including two miscarriages, are the result of toxic chemicals in the products used in her salon. She courageously becomes involved in the fight for safe cosmetics. Van transforms from a self-described shy woman who speaks minimal English to a forthright advocate who testifies before Congress. In Washington, DC, at hearings for the Safe Cosmetics and Personal Care Products Act, Van, now pregnant, steps forward to speak out for all people exposed to the toxic chemicals in personal care products.
