  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Crawford MacKenzie (Ferguson) is the best hairstylist in Scotland, so it came as no surprise when he received an invitation to the International Platinum Scissors Style-Off competition in Los Angeles. Nor was it any wonder that BBC documentarian Martin Samuels (Langham) would come along to film Crawford

While pixelization is apparent, overall, the picture is quite pleasing.
