For years, filmmaker Sacha Polak has known that she carries the BRCA1 hereditary cancer gene, responsible for hereditary breast cancer, but she can’t decide what to do: have her breasts removed as a preventive measure to minimalize the risk of developing breast cancer? What if she had her breasts removed, thus forsaking her femininity, for nothing? Sacha decides to make a film about her search. NEW BOOBS is a personal and open documentary. Sacha’s experiences are moving and emotional but also enlightening and sometimes even hilarious.
