Which thoughts lie hidden under the locks of these children from Noord-Brabant? Hairdresser Marko manages to worm their worries and dreams out of them. Moving stories and new hairdos.

Getting their hair cut by hairdresser Marko, children feel at ease. In the salon’s chair, they talk about how they see life, what their worries are, and the things that really make them happy. Whether this involves fear, love, stress, growing up or their bodies, the children uninhibitedly vent their feelings. Funny and moving stories and anecdotes, which will be recognisable to many children and their parents. The conversation is not finished until the children are completely satisfied with their new hairdos.
