The daughter of a barber, Mabel Robinson turned her passion into a profession at a time when women could aspire to not much more than a good marriage. Passion and ambition, as she often recalls, gave her the drive that remains to this day. Filmmaker Teresa MacInnes delves into the life of 90-year-old Mabel who has been a hairdresser for the past 70 years, the first woman in Hubbards, Nova Scotia to run a business. Business is in the purple at this inspiring salon where some patrons have been visiting for over 60 years.
