Tanzanians, Rehema and Idi, celebrate the birth of their new son, but must weigh their hopes against unanticipated fears. Little Kwasi was born with albinism, and they live in a part of Tanzania where superstition and fear guide the hearts of men. Those with albinism are not looked upon as people, but instead are viewed as “ghosts”. They are maimed, mutilated, and killed for their flesh and used as components in spells. In the home of his parents, Kwasi is safe, but as a scheming Witch Doctor learns of his existence, Rehema and Idi must fight to protect him when the Doctor and his Harvester come for the little one’s white flesh.
