Desperate to become less shallow, Stan, a handsome 19-year-old, deforms his face with bandages and attends a support group for disfigured people after he learns his cancer-ridden mother will undergo invasive facial surgery. But when he’s exposed as an impostor, Stan strikes a deal with Vanessa, the domineering workshop leader: he stays with the group, and in exchange he trains them on how to use their facial differences as a weapon against our beauty-obsessed culture. Happy Face is filmed with real persons with facial differences playing fictionalized versions of themselves.
