In Tanzania, witch doctors still propagate the belief that the body parts of albino people will bring wealth and good fortune. Against the background of a series of brutal murders of albinos, two albino men fight for their rights: Josephat has spent most of his life campaigning against anti-albino discrimination and confronting communities with their murderous deeds, and fifteen-year-old Vedastus is smart and creative, but his poor eyesight is an obstacle to academic progress. Now he is desperately hoping for a new chance at a special school. Harry Freeland’s film reveals a story of deep-rooted superstition, suffering and incredible strength.
