Sasha Bennington is a determined, ambitious model who wants to get to the top of the beauty pageant ladder


She’s also eleven years old. Watch as she becomes the first ever British child to take part in a kid’s beauty pageant in America. Parents Jane and Martin have instilled in her that beauty and money are the most important things in life – and this pageant is her big opportunity for stardom. Sasha immerses herself in this quest: nightly rehearsals of catwalk style, private coaching for the cheerleading routine, spray-tans and manicures – while counting every calorie that passes her tiny lip glossed lips, every step of the way from Burnley to Texas is followed. This fascinating documentary raises many important and contemporary questions of childhood and parenting in the 21st century.
