When under threat of having their children stolen by authorities, Indigenous mothers resorted to darkening their fair-skinned children with mud and charcoal. In this short film, the mother of an albino Aboriginal girl tries to disguise her child but to no avail. After the girl has been taken from her family, she flees the convent and attempts to return home.
