Summary
Eliaichi Kimaro is a mixed-race, first-generation American with a Tanzanian father and Korean mother. When her parents retire and move back to Tanzania, Kimaro begins a project that examines the intricate fabric of multiracial identity, and grapples with the complex ties that children have to the cultures of their parents. Though Kimaro grew up spending every other summer in Tanzania, it isn't until she is older and in an interracial relationship of her own that she finally grasps the importance of understanding her family's cultural heritage. She and her partner set out to make a documentary about her father's struggle to fit back in with the family and Chagga culture he left behind forty years earlier. But in the process, Kimaro struggles with her own relationship to Tanzania, and learns more about the heritage that she took for granted as a child. As she talks to more family members, she uncovers a cycle of violence that resonates with her work and life in the U.S., inspiring Kimaro to dig deeper and reveal the hidden truths of her own story. And in so doing, she finds her own way to translate her father's Chagga culture into her own personal legacy.
