Synopsis

At a little Arab hair salon in Haifa, the director installs a mini film set over the washing basin. Both Palestinian and Jewish women frequent the salon and the director chats with them, while shampooing their hair, about politics and love. What emerges from these conversations is an honest and nuanced portrayal of contemporary Israel.
