An exploration into the age-old quest of cultural identity, and searching for an answer to the question of what defines ourselves as individuals. This conceptual piece to a proposed longer form documentary, follows director and 1st generation Ghanaian Sean Addo's quest to balance his identity between African and African American culture. As a person who once saw both sides as simply "Black," his experiences of prejudices and cultural divisions between the two sides shows the story goes much deeper than that.
