Andrea is a young filmmaker in Bogota, Colombia. Her three friends, in their twenties like Andrea, are single, independent, and often discuss love, relationships, and the desire to start a family.

Part of the Varan Workshop in Colombia series, HAIR THERAPY gives Andrea the opportunity to question her friends. They mirror Andrea, allowing her to answer to her own questions of youth.

Far removed from poverty, insecurity and war, Andrea's generation of Colombian women work and are financially independent. They want to manage their life as they please, but are still, after all, in search of Prince Charming, if not their soul mate.
