Black Sunshine is a story about an African hairdresser and her albino daughter. The main focus is the emotionally complex relationship between a mother and her daughter. The mother feels ashamed of her own albino daughter, and ironically, her own blackness. The script is poetic, humorous and brutal at the same time. It is also a document of everyday life in Ghana.
