For forty years A-Rui has been running a barbershop. She is fully commited to her work and defeat is never an option for her, but her children treat her profession with disdain. One day, a family asks A-Rui if she would be willing to travel long-distance to cut the hair for their bedridden father. A-Rui decides to embark on a long journey to do something others think is not worthwhile.
