Synopsis It’s just the hair - but what if your personality is more in the skin and your output than you thought? A film about panic, grief and fear to lose the one you love. And worse, about losing yourself.
Hair is something you easily forget, but it becomes something you never forget once it’s lost. What if you lose your hair all of a sudden? Hairis an honest portrait of a woman who starts to lose her hair just when she realizes she found ‘a man of her life.’ She constantly confronts unexpected situations but stays courageous enough to reveal all her inner thoughts and anxiety frankly, which touches our heart deeply. (KWON Eun-sun)
