What do you do when you’re an aging hairdresser stuck in a nursing home waiting to die? You break out and run around town gathering supplies so you can style a dead woman’s hair for her funeral, of course! Mr. Pat (Udo Kier) was once the go-to hairdresser for Sandusky, Ohio’s elite women, until a protégé betrayed him, set up shop across the street, stole his clients and pushed him out of business. Mr. Pat is determined to overcome all obstacles so he can have his last hurrah, as he wanders around the gritty streets of Sandusky in this funny, quirky, heart-warming tale. The film is the third part of writer/director Todd Stephens’ “Hometown Trilogy” after Edge of Seventeen and Gypsy 83.
Opens with short film: FLEX. Charles explores the gray areas of his own sexuality after going through an unexpected breakup.
