Story


Every neighborhood has that special place where people from the community can come, sit, talk and let their hair down. For many, it's the thread that holds neighborhoods together. In an era of corporate takeovers in the high stakes real estate market, the neighborhood shop is a dying breed with little resources to fight back.

Jenny (Fox) is being forced to sell her shop to the Department of Water and Power (DWP) due to eminent domain. Regardless of the legal advice Jenny receives, she refuses to let the corporate giant take the one remaining pillar of her inner city neighborhood. She declines the money and decides to take on the DWP in court, all the while keeping it from her outrageously funny and colorful employees and clientele. A classic tale of the underdog, "The Salon" is a fresh look on the inside of a salon and neighborhood where the unexpected happens and the "mom andd pop" shop fights to win. Based on Shelly Garrett's hit stage play, "Beauty Shop."
