Art Leroldi is terminal. Terminally irritable, that is. A small-time Reno barber stuck in a rut of haircuts, hot dogs and horse books, he lives everyday like a warmed over version of the last.
Hit with the unexpected death of his long time business partner and last apparent friend, he's faced with losing the only thing in life he's got left - his "man's man" barbershop. To keep it, he'll be forced to hire the last person on earth he'd ever want working there - a woman; more specifically, Gloria Macintyre, a spitfire young lady who suddenly finds herself unable to take Art's "no" for an answer.
