Synopsis: A Lot Like You takes us on a personal journey into the most vulnerable corners of a family history spanning generations and continents. 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.
