Abstract

What exactly is ugly? "The beautiful has but one type, the ugly a thousand," wrote Victor Hugo. Does that mean that the ugly would be more interesting than the beautiful? Less boring, more profound, more real? The objective of this film is to tell the story of the ugly, and to understand the shifting criteria that separates beauty and ugliness, and then turning the traditional points of view on their head.
