“Let’s face facts, it’s not everyday you discover that you’re slowly mutating into an un-datable freak!”
Balding paranoiac Paul Hisky doesn’t take the revelation that he’s losing his hair graciously at all. In fact so alarmed is he by this cruel twist of genetic fate that he immediately embarks upon a gruelling regimen of treatments that begins with him burning his tonsure under a tanning lamp and ends with dangerous misuse of the gender bending drug Spiralactone, which he calculates has a sixty six percent chance of re-growing his hair and a two percent chance of turning him into a woman.
Things seem to be running to plan until Hisky finds himself in a blossoming relationship with Rebecca. He’s able to conceal his tonsure for a while using a baseball cap and a variety of spray-on, rub-on and shake-on products, but when she makes an off the cuff remark about another man’s “disfiguring baldness”, Hisky finds himself resorting to more potent medications and that’s when things really spiral out of control.
Ji-Head is not just a story about a paranoiac fighting his baldness but a hilarious tragi-comedy about the impact of hairloss on 21st century men.
