Abstract

"African-American filmmaker Marco Williams was twenty-four years old the first time he learned his father's name. He had been raised in a closely knit family where for generations, strong, husbandless mothers were the norm and fathers promptly disappeared. This film documents Marco's seven-year search for the elusive father he never knew and his coming to terms with the truth of his origins." (Alexander Street Press)
