Renowned street artist Ron English’s image of Abraham Lincoln and Barack Obama merged together gained national attention for being illegally plastered all over the streets of Boston. So what does English decide to do? What else but travel cross-country with a band of artists and musicians to spread the image of Abraham Obama on any blank wall they can get their hands on. Experience their colorful journey as interesting characters and unpredictable events unfold along the road. Combining the influence of art and politics in an effective campaign for change, the film will not disappoint.

Abraham Obama documents a grassroots campaign to get Obama elected for president while providing an unfiltered look into the power of propaganda and the interworkings of the creative minds of today.
