Lisa lost her hair as a child. When all methods of treatment have failed, her mom decides to create wigs for her daughter, made of her own hair. Soon, the hair donated by her mother becomes more and more of a burden. This animated documentary is a poetic reconstruction of the past in which Lisa had to face not only her own illness but also social rejection. Moreover, it is an impression on the relationship between a mother and a daughter in which love is just a hair’s breadth away from overprotectiveness.
