It's 1976, petite 18-year-old Amy is among the first class of female cadets accepted to military service academies.

Description: The Haircut brings vibrancy into an already colorful and pivotal time period in American history. As a result of Public Law 94-106 signed by President Ford in 1975, female cadets were first admitted into service academies after a 174-year ban, and Amy is among the inaugural class. Petite and underweight, Amy is hardly a typical recruit -- and she becomes a target in this hard-shelled brotherhood.

This film will be screened along with The Last Viewing, Soul Stealer, Women Make History at Camp Pendleton: Susan Murphy Package from Evening Edition, Craft in America - Service, and Local Film Showcase: She Wore Silver Wings during the Women in the Military Film Block.
