'Born With It' tells the story of a hafu boy, half-black and half-Japanese. He is judged by his peers on the first of school and isolated because they are prejudiced against his race. They believe that because he is black, he is ill. Only one boy decides to give him a chance. Before watching this, I knew about the discrimination against hafus, but I didn't think it will go as far as discriminating against children. I believe he had a harder time because he was ostensibly non-Japanese, since Japanese-looking hafus are easier to accept by the general population. The movie was lovely, though. Very straight forward and with a clear story. It made me tear up and by the end of it I was cheering the boy. The story made me want the boy to succeed in a society which rejected him for something he couldn't control. I think it was impossible not to sympathise with the main character.
