Synopsis: Comedy - A diffident teen blossoms after her transformative day with a beautiful bearded builder. Feeling unconfident after once again being excluded by her girl gang, teenage Lucy resolves to visit 'Nails & Beauty' salon. However, Lucy discovers that 'Nails & Beauty' is a filthy workshop staffed by butch, bearded builders; headed by Glaswegian hunk Louisa. In a subversion of the stereotypical makeover trope, Lucy gets a rough and tough makeover involving building materials and power tools instead of cosmetics and beauty gadgets. Lucy is enamoured with her new look - and with Louisa. As their relationship blossoms, so does Lucy. Through this radical transformation, Lucy discovers a new mode of womanhood and a space where she belongs. With Libby Mai, Jodie Mitchell, Lucy Garner, Kemah Bob and Jacqui Bardelang. 

The Score:

Fun and tongue-in-cheek with bubbly pop tracks for surreal and dream sequences - plus a smattering of romance.
