A tale with a tail
In a suburb of Tokyo, Japan, department store employee Mami goes to a salon where her pet Pomeranian, Mini, can get a haircut at the same time. But Mami's love for her dog masks a personal story of loss and longing.
The Salon is a series of conversations about identity and appearance with women around the world, in the intimate space of the hairdresser's chair.
