Inspired by the first couple’s first date, this feel-good romance tells the story of how a charming young law associate called Barack Obama (played by Parker Sawyers) tried to woo reluctant attorney Michelle Robinson (Tika Sumpter) on a daylong trip in and around Chicago’s South Side in 1989. As they walk, talk and bond over their personal and professional aspirations, this rendezvous marks the first spark of romance between one of the most important partnerships in American history.
