“Belonging in the USA: The Story of Michael D. McCarty” shares the journey of a man who even in the face of great obstacles spreads joy wherever he goes. Follow Michael as he evolves from aspiring scientist to the Black Panther Party, from FBI target to serving in the army, from drug addiction to an ashram. The twists and turns of Michael’s life will fill you with hope, laughter and a living example of resilience. Blending interviews with stop motion animation and archival footage, Michael’s story reminds us how we grow through the challenges life throws our way.
