This intimate chronicle of an African-American family in Philadelphia spans ten years, beginning at the dawn of the Obama presidency. Parents Christopher 'Quest' Rainey and Christine'a 'Ma Quest' Rainey navigate the hardship and strife that grips their North Philadelphia neighborhood, as they raise their children and cultivate a creative sanctuary for their community in their home music studio. An inspirational testament to love, healing and hope, this tender portrait of the Rainey family is a vivid illumination of race, class and life in modern day America.
