Shorn: Toys to Men

Bensie chronicles his journey from damaged boy to confused young man paying hustlers to shave their heads. The world of theater is his sanctuary, where he spins fantasy into reality and turns his private sexual conflict over haircutting into a career as a wig designer. Humorous and honest, this is a uniquely tangled love story—a triumphant quest for love, forgiveness and self-acceptance.
