Still image from My Father The Luo

Ndolo, a young woman who grew up in Germany with parents from Poland and Kenya, personifies the theme of "finding oneself" in the world. She had always longed to find out more about her "African side," so she travels to her late father's homeland. While there, she recognizes the parallels between her own life and that of President Barack Obama. Each of their fathers was from the Luo tribe, and Obama's half sister is Roma's family friend.
