The Guinea Pig Club archiveAt the outset of World War II cosmetic surgeon Archibald McIndoe - whose expertise in fashioning the noses of starlets brings him fame but not fulfilment - must abandon plans for retirement to pioneer the most challenging procedures in surgical history, including the complete reconstruction of the human face. His new group of patients: the savagely burned fighter pilots and aircrew who helped to thwart the German invasion of Britain. But McIndoe soon discovers that all his efforts in the operating theatre are futile unless he can also save the shattered man behind the face. ?For what good is a face without a man - a whole man?' This then becomes his mission - and his own salvation. Emotions run the gamut from poignant to hilarious while challenging our attitudes towards beauty and its relevance to success.
