Film unavailable :-(

Sorry, this film is no longer available.

This rare and intimate portrait explores a young woman’s perspective about living with albinism - a condition which has often made her an outsider - but equally determined to lead a normal life. “I’ll never be able to drive a car, but that’s about it,” she says as she climbs the highest indoor climbing arena in Europe.
