The film picks up during Obama’s tenure at Columbia University in 1981, which showcases his relationship with his parents, and situations where Obama “finds himself pulled between various social spheres,” a portion of the description for the movie reads.

“Before he created change,” and “Before he made us believe we can” are a few of the tag-lines viewers see in the reel’s trailer, setting us up for a story that’s presumably rarely told on film.
