Observational portrait of four Afro barbers, films its subjects over the course of one week. Delving into what people’s relationship to those that cut their hair really means in the twenty first century, the film takes in barber chairs in Ghana, Jamaica, USA and the UK, interweaves their stories and examines both the similarities and differences in their experiences. What emerges is the colourful, polarised lives of four men who do the same thing in different time zones, with very different realities.
