This unsettling film conveys the experience of children of mixed racial parentage. Suffering from the pain of racial harassment a young girl and her brother try to wash their skin white with scouring powder. This emotional semi autobiographical testimony to the internalised effects of racism and the struggle for self-definition is a powerful catalyst for discussion.
