About Absolutely Safe:

An 83-minute documentary about the controversy over breast implant safety. Inspired by Audrey Ciancutti's, the filmmaker's mother, experience of being diagnosed with breast tumors, having a double mastectomy, getting breast implants, then having those implants rupture causing her health to decline, the film "is the story of everyday women who find themselves and their breasts in the tangled and confusing intersection of health, money, science, and beauty."
