Meet Olivia Hughes.  You may think she has everything.  She is an actress and appears on lots of tv commercials.  She is popular at school.  And has some very good friends.  All that is about to change.  Olivia breaks out in a severe case of acne.  She tries to pretend that it isn’t acne.  Maybe it’s spider bites.  But she will have to accept the truth and all that comes with it.  Her acting career may just be in jeopardy.  No one wants a zitface to sell their products.  And her boyfriend is pulling away as well.  And those friends she had – they are just not there for her.
