By Kenrya Rankin Nov 21, 2016

As many struggle to accept that President Barack Obama will leave the White House on January 20, Netflix offers a balm. The streaming site just released the first full length trailer for the new original film, “Barry.”

The feature-length movie, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, stars biracial Australian actor Devon Terrell. It explores Obama’s life in 1981, when he was a 20-year-old junior at Columbia University who felt stuck between the Black and White worlds of his parents. From run-ins with campus police to trying to fit in on basketball courts in Harlem, it aims to show how that dichotomy shaped Obama into the man he is today. Indian-American director Vikram Gandhi (“Kumaré”) helms the project.

Watch the trailer above. The movie debuts on Netflix on December 16.
