A young father must fight to save his son, when he finds out that his friends are being replaced by people with beards. An absurdist horror, the film looks satirically at the changing nature of the modern man.
One by one, Michael's unsuspecting friends are turning into something horrible, as a formidable and utterly insidious force has a strange effect on their facial hair. Little by little, the men are compelled to embrace the drastic and frightful change--no male human being, young or mature, is safe from harm. Someone is making them grow a beard; however, what happens if Michael and the rest of the world won't abide by the new norm? And, above all, what fate awaits those with a clean face who prefer shaving against the grain?Written by
The irony about contemporary manhood is the basic idea of this charming short film. The effort to escape from a trend , the need to protect your child against future, the fight for preserve old fashion order. And the present. The cinematography, the fragments of thriller and action movie, the atmosphere and the smart story are basic and inspired pillars of this short film about parenthood , about men, about changed society and about the desire for be part of more profound past. The rest - only a falling of a spinner fidget.
