Summary taken from container.
Editor, Chris Droukas.
Told through the stories of six different men ranging in age from fourteen to eighty six, the film documents the changing significance of hair and the turban among Sikhs in India. We see younger Sikh men, abandoning their hair and turban to follow current fashion trends, while the older generation struggles to retain the visible symbols of their religious identity. The film is a timely and relevant exploration of the inherent conflict between tradition and modernity, between pragmatism and faith. The choice of cutting one's hair is one that not only concerns the individual and his family, but an entire community.
In Panjabi with English subtitles.
