Amita and her family have moved to a new town after her father's business was destroyed in a fire. Hoping for a better life in her new home, Amita is sad when her bitter father refuses to allow her to mix with her white neighbours. To make things worse, she becomes the victim of racial abuse at school. Will Amita always be hated for being different?
