Character Info

Dre considers himself the family patriarch and when he looks at his life - he sees a beautiful wife and four kids living happily in their colonial home in the 'burbs. But when he looks a little closer -- have the trappings of success brought too much assimilation for this black family? The world he sees has a much different lens than the one he would like his family to look through.
