An ambitious Singaporean Indian girl works her way to the spotlight to break down the barriers of Colourism in society and the film industry.

Not Fair

Beautiful, talented and ambitious Rebecca Beins, 18, has always dreamed about being in the spotlight, but never felt she stood a chance because of her dark complexion. Ever since she was a little girl, she was bullied and called derogatory names for being so dark. As a teenager, she was conditioned to believe that fair skin was the definition of beauty due to skin-whitening ads and TV shows, films and TV commercials which featured predominantly light skinned talents. The discrimination against darker skin tones made Rebecca determined to tackle Colourism by working her way up the film industry to prove to the world that beauty comes in all shades.
