Storyline

The overprotected Angela has been kept inside a grand, yet constricting mansion since childhood. Her obsessive-compulsive mother takes care of her long hair - yielding to the family tradition that a woman should always grow her hair long and beautiful. As Angela's 18th birthday draws nearer, her hair becoming bars of cage on her face exemplifies her imprisonment. Written by Freya
