Short film on how colour is played up by the media. This short film is part of the Bangsa Malaysia 2005 series.
It was a typical family evening in front of the television. As commercial break comes along, one of the many ads for whitening products appears. A little girl, through her innocent idealism, questions her parents on why being dark-skinned means ugly; a question that baffles the adults as they already are desensitized by the media play on race and skin color.
