Write a short summary of what happens in the film.

An old, grey-haired woman goes to the hair salon. As the hairdresser cuts her hair, the hair on the ground forms into the shape of her younger self. She watches her hair recreate her memories with her husband. We considered hair as a living part of body and tried to express her life's story by a puppet animation in which hair is rarely used as a material. We tell a story about moving past tragedy. We hope the audience feels the potential of a hairdresser who can help you move forward in life.

Tell the jury about the animation used and summarise any relevant challenges or techniques.

A stop-motion animation was realized by creating a puppet using artificial hair with gray hairs. This is probably a technique that is unparalleled in the world. The doll has no facial expression, but I tried to express joy, anger, sorrow, and pleasure as if it had a face.
