Please note that "British & Proud" is rated X and suggested for mature audiences only. The series was produced by filmmakers Larry Fessenden, Glenn McQuaid and Lisa Wisely.

In "The Conformation", written and directed by Paul Solet, a plastic surgeon obsessed with creating the perfect form falls for a patient obsessed with becoming it.
