Junior is nine years old and has stubbornly curly hair, or "BAD HAIR". He wants to have it straightened for his yearbook picture, like a fashionable pop singer with long, ironed hair. This puts him at odds with his mother, Marta. The more Junior tries to look beautiful and make his mother love him, the more she rejects him. He will find himself cornered, facing a painful decision.

Junior tiene nueve años y el "PELO MALO". Se lo quiere alisar para la foto de la escuela y así verse como un cantante de moda. Esta situación generará un enfrentamiento con su madre Marta. Mientras Junior busca verse bello para que su mamá lo quiera, ella lo rechaza cada vez más. Finalmente Junior se verá obligado a tomar una dolorosa decisión.

Bad Hair has won 11 international film festival awards, including Best Film at the Havana Film Festival, and Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Film at the Mar del Plata Film Festival in 2013.
