On Oct. 30, 1969, Pete O'Neal, a young member of the Black Panther Party in Kansas City, Mo., was arrested for transporting a gun across state lines. One year later, O'Neal fled the charge.  For more than 30 years he has lived in Tanzania. O'Neal is one of the last American exiles from an era when activists considered themselves at war with the US government. Today, in Tanzania, this community organizer confronts very different challenges and finds himself living between two worlds--North America and Africa--as well as his radical past and his uncertain future. The film is directed by Aaron Matthews.
