According to Deadline, the film will follow a woman named Violet (Lathan) who has a seemingly flawless life until an accident at the hair dresser causes everything to unravel and she begins to realize that she was living the life she thought she was supposed to live, not the one that she really wanted. She starts to put the pieces back together with a little help from a soulful barber and his young daughter. Violet finds the courage to cast off some of the things that she didn’t really need, starting with the perfectly straightened hair, and find a life that has real meaning.

Lynn Whitfield will portray her mother and Ernie Hudson will be her father.

Haifaa Al-Mansour is directing and it will be produced by Southside with You producer Tracey Bing with Lathan, Jared Leboff and Marc Platt. It is yet another collaboration from Lathan and Gina Prince-Bythewood, who contributed rewrites to Tina Chism’s script.
