1988, 98 Minutes


A docu-drama about discrimination experienced by two women from different backgrounds, and their bid to resolve their problems through the Anti-Discrimination Board. The first story concerns Jessica, the first female photographer on a metropolitan newspaper, whose promotion causes resentment among her colleagues and triggers a campaign of harassment. The other story is about Leticia, a Filipino nurse whose qualifications are disregarded by her employers. Despite her dedication and professionalism, some patients also object to being cared for "by an Asian".
