A feisty 89-year-old and her iconic hair salon

“My customers are all dying on me, but I’m still going strong!” The aging and fiercely independent hairdresser Mabel was the first woman in her rural Nova Scotia community to become a business owner – and after 70 years of cutting hair, she has no plans to retire. With its blazing themes of hard work, lifetime dedication, friendship, and community, this film about a beauty parlor is more than skin deep.
