This documentary based on interviews, backstage footage, and personal video diaries follows the rise of model Sara Ziff as she and then-boyfriend Ole Schell use a camcorder to document her career from her start as a newly discovered 18-year-old to her success as an in-demand model, flying all over the world and pulling in six figures before her 20th birthday. Through intimate, first-hand accounts from Ziff's peers in the business, the film also touches on issues in the modeling industry such as eating disorders, drug use, sexual harassment, and the increasing demand for adolescent models.
