    • Synopsis
    • Adam, a young Tanzanian boy with albinism, knows what it's like to be treated like a monster. Although albinism affects roughly 1 in 2,000 Tanzanians, anyone afflicted with the condition is considered a pariah in their community. People look at Adam, his brother, and thousands like them as “ghosts” who are “cursed.” Adam's life is forever changed when a malicious attack threatens his already limited life and sends him on a journey to Canada and back. Adam's heart-wrenching story reveals the surprising truth about the treatment of albinos in Africa.
