White Black Boy

Shida is the new kid in class in a private boarding school in Tanzania. He is shy, he has no self esteem, he does not speak one word of English - the primary language in the school, and he suffers from albinism. Like most children with albinism in the country, Shida was taken away from his parents to be protected from the witchcraft related killings. The film follows Shida during his first year at the new school where the rules are strict and tolerance low. He is trying his best to meet the demands. The school is his one chance to ge an education and to escape a life on the bottom of society. With the help from his new friend Allan, he is struggling to become better in school and to be accepted by the teachers and pupils.
