Grace is a 17-year-old girl with albinism who fled from Burundi to Rotterdam with her family as a young child to escape albino hunters. As she approaches the end of her senior year, Grace feels the pressure to meet her family’s expectations. When she meets Kya and her group of friends, Grace is drawn to their sense of confidence and pride in their African identity. Desperate to become a part of this group, Grace struggles to overcome years of exclusion and low self-esteem. On a journey to find acceptance and belonging, Grace discovers the power of self-love and the importance of embracing her unique identity and heritage.
