When a little girl finds solace in between her mother’s legs, biggest fears become reality.


As a young girl, the first beauty salon a girl is introduced to, is between her mother’s legs. It’s a place where innocence is treasured, bonds are strengthened and confidence is boosted. For Jada, as her mother Janice is routinely doing her hair she finds solace in-between her mother’s legs to confess earth shattering news.
