It became too dangerous for Anastazia to stay home. As an albino child in Tanzania, she continuously runs the risk of being abducted and killed. Now, she finally sees her parents again.
When Anastazia was six, she had to flee her village in Tanzania. Being an albino child, it had become too dangerous to stay. In many African countries, people believe the body parts and bones of albinos possess magical powers. This is why children like Anastazia are hunted. Now she stays, like hundreds of other albino children, in a shelter. Behind the fence it is safe, but life over there is not a picnic, as this documentary shows. But Anastazia is hopeful: she heard her parents will finally visit her.
