Individuality is supposed to be a trait that is appreciated and encouraged. Unfortunately many find themselves isolated when they “march to the beat” of a drummer that is very different from the norm. In this clip it is easy to identify with the young girl who is relegated to the sidelines due to her choice of dress, hairstyle and make-up. Her Goth appearance attracts the relentless bullying of her peers and there is an emotional sadness that is carried through each changing scene.
As the video winds to a close this girl arrives at her home to discover that her father has painted the house, gate and pathway. He has chosen black as the color to demonstrate his solidarity with his daughter. This touching act of kindness is one that will trigger a deeply emotional response in most viewers. It is going to resonate very strongly with parents whose own children are choosing to follow non-conforming pathways through life.
