Purpose

TAYLOR CHRISTOPHER

 

Today in the western world it is common for Caucasian couples to adopt children from various ethnic minorities but rarely if ever do you see it the other way round. But it happens and in these cases, families often encounter discrimination not only from society at large but also their own communities as well. This film depicts one such couple who in an act of great charity take in a young white orphan and grow to love him like a son. The prejudice they face, both overt and unthinking, highlights stereotypical and preconceived notions of the nuclear family and exposes the double standard that says it's okay for a black woman to raise a white child as long as she's the maid.

This teaser is based on true events; A mother is confronted by an awkward dilemma when she takes her daughter to the playground.
