Youth Knows No Pain (2009) Trailer B
Second trailer for the documentary Youth Knows No Pain.
From elective cosmetic surgeries to toxic injections to expensive creams, America's anti-aging business is a $60 billion a year enterprise that caters to and fuels the fear of growing old. As the daughter of a plastic surgeon, Mitch McCabe has long been intrigued by the extreme measures people take to maintain the appearance of youth.
McCabe spent two years traveling the country to visit doctors, experts and anti-aging enthusiasts, interviewing hundreds of men and women ranging in age from 18 to 93 for Youth Knows No Pain. In the process, her own opposition to "beating the clock" began to weaken.
Interwoven with the stories of others are McCabe's reflections on her own life and on her father, whose life was cut tragically short in a car accident. A Vietnam War trauma surgeon turned small-town plastic surgeon who specialized in reconstructive surgery, he began practicing cosmetic surgery as the demand grew.
