A documentary filmmaker's intent to make a movie about the prejudices red-haired people learn to live with evolves into something entirely different.

A smartly perceptive and very brave personal documentary diary of one man's attempts to come to terms with being an oft-derided and bullied redhead.

A warm, inspirational and unflinchingly honest doc that's equally moving and uplifting.
