Synopsis:
The protagonist is currently studying at university and is overwhelmed by coursework and assignments. He is struggling to cope yet still dedicates lots of time and effort to aim to achieve well. We see the grades begin to return and the results are poor, leaving him feeling defeated.

Struck by a sense of failure, the protagonist begins to give up believing he'll never achieve anything before catching a glimpse of a poster promoting an end of year beauty/ make-up competition. This poster is solely marketed towards females, a social construct that motivates the protagonist to self-teach makeup skills and prove he is capable of success.

The audience witness a journey of the protagonist learning make-up skills via tutorials and constant trial and error. Time passes, where we jump towards the day of the competition, the audience unaware of the development of skill level, where the protagonist is finally revealed, transformed by makeup as a jaw-dropping head turner. The protagonist consequently wins the competition leaving him with a sense of accomplishment.
