Sarin travels to countries in Asia, South America, the Caribbean and Africa to investigate the history and tragic ongoing effects of this complex issue, collecting personal stories from those most impacted by colourism, including a Filipina entrepreneur whose business has flourished within the billion-dollar skin-whitening industry.
