Synopsis

Since 2008, albinos in Tanzania have been hunted by local witch doctors who use their body parts for magic potions. From 2008 to 2010, more than 200 witch-doctor inspired murders occurred. Here, we follow Alias, an albino boy on the run. After his father's murder, his mother sends him to the city where his uncle Kosmos takes him under his wing. A fast learner, Alias sells sunglasses, DVDs and cellphones on the street, but it is not long before he encounters first hand the difficulties of life and of being different.
