Based on a manga series by Rieko Saibara, Permanent Nobara stars Miho Kanno as a woman named Naoko who returns to her village home with her daughter after getting divorced. Her mother runs the only hair salon in the area for women to get perms, but the main reason they show up day after day is to discuss their most personal love woes in a quasi group confessional. With the support of the other women, they’re able to both laugh and cry about their situations while managing to look ahead even after they’ve been betrayed by the men in their lives.
