To find the truth, Lina reconnects with her beauty queen peers for the first time since the 1998 Miss World finals, to hear their confessions of what life has truly been like for them after the all the glitz and glamour has faded. With unique access into this secret sisterhood, these beauty queens share with her, their honest stories of life behind the perfect bodies, well rehearsed waves, gowns, sashes and crowns - sometimes tragic, funny and inspiring.
