African-American college graduate Warren is hired by the 2008 Obama campaign and lands in the streets of East Cleveland. Somewhere between knocking on doors, fending off cops, and questioning his own racial and sexual identity, he learns that changing society isn't as easy as he imagined. Obama-ology is a compelling exploration of a black minority that has its hopes reignited.
