Israel, 2015 | Short, 36 min.

Synopsis

In a little hair salon owned by a Christian-Arab in Haifa, Israel, the director installs a camera over the washing-basin where she chats with the clients she is shampooing. She paints an unexpected choral portrait of this space that provides a temporary freedom in which Arab and Jewish women share their differences and a community of views on politics, history and love.
