"Blanc-Noir et Heureux" relates the discrimination and rejection that Fatu and Restarick experience because of their albinism. The film also exposes the determination of these two characters to keep their heads on their shoulders to realize their dreams, despite the prejudices.

The goal is to show that people with albinism are normal people like all humans and that whatever the color of our skin, equality is what characterizes us the best.
