For patients with severe facial deformities, craniofacial surgery offers a chance at a normal life. The program introduces Melissa, a young woman who suffers from Crouzon's syndrome. A genetic disease, Crouzon's causes the bones in the face and skull to fuse too early, resulting in facial abnormalities. Melissa hopes surgery will help correct her problem and boost her physical and emotional well-being.
