About the film:

The final installment in writer-director Todd Stephens’s Ohio Trilogy – after Edge of Seventeen and Gypsy 83 – premiered at SXSW 2021 and screened in the Local Heroes Competition at the Cleveland International Film Festival.

Legendary actor Udo Kier stars as retired hairdresser Pat Pitsenbarger, who escapes the confines of his small-town Sandusky, Ohio nursing home after learning of his former client’s dying wish for him to style her final hairdo. Soon, Pat embarks on an odyssey to confront the ghosts of his past – and collect the beauty supplies necessary for the job.

Swan Song is a comical and bittersweet journey about rediscovering one’s sparkle, and looking gorgeous while doing so.
