The Fairweather Girl (2010)

Mary is a little girl, much like many others. Only she wants to be more like her Dad.   Each morning she heads into the bathroom and copies his shaving routine, he with a cut-throat razor, she with the back of a comb. One night she sneaks out of her bedroom whilst her parents are asleep to try her Dad’s razor out for herself…
