Me, Masi & Mr. Clean

Me, Masi & Mr. Clean is a charming tale about a young girl's struggle with self acceptance and Society’s obsession with unrealistic ideals. Seema, a precocious 11 year old girl, constantly goaded by her Masi (Aunt) about her dark skin, resorts to an unusual means of confronting the “problem.” Mr. Cleanliness is next to Godliness after all, so a few bottles of this beloved household product could be just the thing to help her. After an unexpected turn of events, a beautiful truth is revealed.
