Synopsis

When a lesbian hairdresser discovers she is dying of cancer, she attempts to reunite with her ex-husband for the British Hair-dressers’ Federation annual completion. The comedy takes place during the competition as we meet several flamboyant and bizarre characters. The drama comes from the dying woman attempting to reunite with her estranged son who is bitter over her leaving ten years before to live a gay lifestyle with another woman.

Dove Review

The film takes its humor mostly from absurdities and crude sexual bawdiness. It also condones homosexuality.
