An Ode To Modern Democracy And The Hairdresser, short film from Matt Strachan

An Ode To Modern Democracy And The Hairdresser

Janice is a working class single mother from Woolwich. But once a month she becomes the most powerful woman in the nation. As hairdresser to the Prime Minister, she's learned to switch off, avert her eyes, close her ears, leaving her mind to wander into ever deeper, darker territory. Until the day she realises how easy it would be to cause serious political damage with just the few items in her kit bag. A comedy thriller about politics, hairdressing and going down in history.
