A woman called D, seeks shelter from a tormenting past in a sanatorium in the middle of the mountains. The obsession she runs away from is death. But death has taken for her an unusual shape: her own hair. In the sanatorium she will get to know the Director and the other patients who all share the same obsession for hair. The arrival of a powerful storm will begin to surface the fear of past memories and the inmates prepare for the storm's final assault.  Will this storm be the cure that everyone is seeking or will it, on the other hand, bring the destruction that D anticipated?
