Nine boys between the ages of 12 and 18 come to the small hairdresser to get a haircut. Their backgrounds, social environment, and paths diverge, but they all want cool, trendy hairstyles that girls would like. While the hairdresser’s hands are working fast, the film’s director, Léa Forest invites them to talk. When answering questions about love, sex, bullying, and what it means to be a man, boys sometimes feel uncomfortable, but are surprisingly sincere.
