How do you deal with the fact that you look very different from everybody else? In Uganda, people with albinism attract attantion everywhere they go, and they often experience stigmatization. The documentary portrays four young people living with albinism in Kampala and how they deal with their „otherness“. Madina is a high school student who grew up in the slums as the only person with albanism in the area. Phyllis become famous when she acted in a music video. Sarah gained confidence when she started experimenting with her looks. Martin works as a model and activist. The film provides a very pesonal glimpse into their lives.
