An uplifting fly-on-the-wall documentary that portrays the monumental time of change during the Obama campaign that led up to his presidency in 2008.


This film interweaves complex cultural questions with the director’s biographical legacy and becomes a source of renewed inspiration reconciling the personal and universal dream for a better world. We follow filmmaker Satti, born to a German mother and Sudanese father and raised behind the Iron Curtain in East Germany, as he embarks on a quest following the Obama campaign to find hope again. On this epic journey, Satti encounters varied and charismatic people that give us deep insights into the political expectations that led to the Barack Obama Presidency. Satti’s initial skepticism is often overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and spirit of the American people; nevertheless he dares to ask: “Can we really resurrect our lost hopes and dreams?”
