Change may be a constant, but these stories of people re-inventing their lives and themselves asks why they would go so far.
It is said that change is the only constant in human life and there are countless examples to prove it. But there are those who change everything about themselves, literally inventing (or adopting) a new identity. What are we to make of these amazing cases? What do they say of the self and of the personas we all create?
THE UNEXPLAINEDTM presents the extraordinary stories of two people in search of answers to these questions. Hear from Cindy Jackson, an Ohio farm girl who became entranced with the looks and "lifestyle" of the Barbie doll. After 30 operations and $250,000, she has transformed herself into "the human Barbie." Then, examine the case of a Chicago man whose fascination with the world of Star Trek led him to abandon his wife and family in order to follow a "higher calling" as leader of the International Federation of Trekkers. Their stories are analyzed by psychologists and psychiatrists, among others, who shed light on their stunning HUMAN TRANSFORMATIONS.
