Nadia Ross collaborates with George Acheson, who, at the age of sixteen, was kicked out of his house because he would not cut his hair. Now a barber by profession currently living and working in Wakefield, Quebec, George faces the irony of his fate and looks to the past in an attempt to reconcile a life profoundly marked by the times. Born in 1950, George was an active participant in two counter-cultural movements of the last half of the 20th century. He immersed himself in the social and political upheavals of the 1960’s and, after the movement fizzled out, he found himself working in London, England just as the Punk movement was starting to build. George has spent his life trying to find for himself a ‘way to live’ in a society he feels no kinship with. As he states: “democracy never worked for me, nobody I ever voted for got in”. Now in his mid-fifties, George sees himself as an invisible, generic, middle-aged man. And as such, he has a story to tell.
