The premise of the short film is based on the relationship of an African American father and his daughter, who both struggle (but eventually succeed) to style the young girl’s hair in preparation for a big day. According to Cherry, the story was born out of a lack of representation of similar stories, and his hope was to show a positive image of African American fathers and their daughters, as well as the beauty of natural hair and self-love.  For Gainesville-based author Carylee Carrington, the same inspiration that created the short film also inspired her to write her newly released children’s book, Pretty Hair.
