"A Comedy About Women's Hair Issues"
This is the tale of a woman's hair gone horrificly awry. Donna Rapunzelle's self esteem, caught up in her appearance and hai, takes a tremendous downturn when she awakes one morning to find her hair tangled and frizzy...her version of apocalypse. Her quality of life also suffers. She is avoided, tussled on the bus, ignored by men...even her faithful stalker has taken the week off! Desperate, she and her boyfriend Jerry go on a quest of the one man she feels can make her hair beautiful again, the bankrupt, reclusive, former shampoo inventor/manufacturer, Benny Brill. Benny, is a man tortured by demons, wracked by public scandal and tortured with self doubt and hallucinations. Can he and will he help return Donna's hair and life to its former lustre? Will Donna be forced to wander the earth caught in a bad hair day or bad hair decade? Will Donna and Benny Brill both find happiness at the bottom of a bottle...A shampoo bottle? Find out.
Bad Hair Day was shot DVC Pro and running time is 15 minutes.
