A funny, touching, at times gut wrenching but above all, life changing documentary, the heart of "Embrace" is Taryn’s story. How she went from a body hater to a body lover. From being devastated by her perceived ugliness to proudly posing nude for the whole world to see. This film uncovers why poor body image has become a global epidemic and what women everywhere can do to have a brighter future.
