About this submission
There's nothing quite like the relationship between a black man and his barber. Good ones come and go and great ones are hard to find, however once you find the one, the seed planted from a 30 minute session can manifest into a lifelong friendship. "FRESH" highlights and celebrates the relationship between the black man and the black barber, and through the eyes of our protagonist, Rome, and his journey to find one that suits him, we get to witness the power of this relationship and the essence of what it really means to be "FRESH".
