オバマが生まれてから大学時代までの足取りを淡々と追ったドキュメンタリー。その焦点は、オバマ大統領の自叙伝「ドリームズ・フロム・マイ・ファーザー」。その中に登場する人物と場所を追って、オバマ大統領の”ドリームズ（夢）”とは何か、彼の目指すものは何か、2期目再選し4年後2016年のアメリカはどうなっているか、という推定の結論に結びつく。 This movie is neither "anti-Obama" nor "pro-Obama."
The writer and director, Dinesh D'Souza simply followed the footsteps of Obama from his birth to college years, and made it into a documentary film. Its focus is Obama's auto-biography, "Dreams from My Father." D'Souza chased and saw the places and people in Obama's book to find "What are President Obama's dreams" and "What is he trying to achieve?" D'Souza came to a speculated conclusion how America will be like in year 2016, 4 years later after Obama gets re-elected.
The dream President Obama is intent on realizing is the dream of his anti-colonialist father, Barack Obama Sr., his absentee father; the two met only once, when the future president was 10 years old. Barack Obama Jr.'s mother told only good things about him, so he had magnified good image of Barack Obama Sr.
Anti-colonialism, as D’Souza defines it, is underwritten by a conviction that “colonialism is a system of piracy in which the wealth of the colonized countries is stolen by the colonizers” and that at the present time the United States, originally a colony itself, is the chief neo-colonial power, continuing its flawed history of subjugating native Americans, Mexicans, Hawaii and the Philippines into the 21st century. Obama is trying to de-colonize many countries from United States and United Kindom.
