Her mind wandering between the last time she felt beautiful, to the obsession with losing her hair, and to that first moment in the doctor’s office when she receives her diagnosis.
Then, when her three childhood friends arrive at the bathroom door, Ellie is brought back to reality. With the women who know her best, she's able to bravely speak her truth, leaving her vulnerable and bare, but not broken.
