Eight women on the margins of Israeli society are thrown together during the course of a school year at Tel Aviv’s oldest beauty school. Amidst the combs and colorings, these women present a microcosm of modern-day Tel Aviv - native Israelis and new immigrants, Asians and Africans, among them women struggling with cancer and personal loss. As they learn to create beauty without, each woman undergoes a powerful transformation within. The eight characters spotlighted in the film share some common ordeals, but also bring unique and varied life experiences to their new environment: two are new immigrants, one from Ethiopia and one from Russia, who see in their new profession a means of escaping destitution; two are foreigners, one from Nigeria and one from Vietnam, who struggle as outsiders in a very close-knit society; two are breast cancer survivors, one a teacher and one a student, who support each other through their illnesses; and two, one a teacher and one a student, have lost their husbands under tragic circumstances. This film tells a story of coexistence – one that plays out in a rather unusual setting – in a part of the world more often associated with conflict and violence. It is a slice-of-life in Israel story that most viewers have probably never seen.
