Synopsis

Is this my body? Who am I? As the carrier of spirit and will, how does a woman's body struggle, jostle, collide, and merge with everything but herself? The body seems to follow the mind as merely its shell or tool. However the body does possess memory. It knows how it feels to be tired, injured, sick, fat, being visible or invisible, bearing life or decaying and aging… Have you looked at your body carefully? Everything about you is buried amongst the hair, deep in your skin, down in your guts, or within those millions of nerves. Whether you have forgotten, your body remembers. We interviewed nearly thirty women and interspersed the clips throughout the film to discuss body's birth, aging, and illnesses during the course of life. Through these talks we learn the diverse female body experience, as if overhearing women’s whispers that flow in a feminine tone.
