Noaz Deshe's drama White Shadow follows an albino boy in Tanzania who is forced by his mother to live in the city with his uncle after the child witnessed his father's death. However, the boy is under constant threat because gangs specialize in kidnapping and killing albinos and selling their body parts to unethical doctors who serve patients that believe having an albino body part imbues them with special powers. This look at a very real social problem screened at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
