The film provides intimate access to this complex hip-hop artist at a time of both personal and professional redemption.

Synopsis: Set against the crumbling landscape of Chicago’s battered south side, IN MY FATHER’S HOUSE is a yearlong journey from homelessness and alcoholism to self-discovery and redemption as Grammy-winning rapper Che “Rhymefest” Smith reunites with his homeless father in a quest to reclaim his neighborhood and discover his true self as a father and son.
Che, a co-writer on the 2015 Academy Award-winning and Golden Globe-winning song “Glory” from the motion picture “Selma” (Best Picture Oscar nominee), is also known for his insightful anthems "Jesus Walks" and "Bullet" and has long found inspiration in issues facing the African-American community, including the growing crisis of fatherlessness and gang violence.
Himself a child of a broken home, Che hasn't seen his father, Brian, in over 25 years, and presumes him dead. But after buying his father's childhood home, Che sets out to find him and learns that his father is now a homeless alcoholic living only several blocks away. Determined to rehabilitate him - and forge a new legacy for his own young family - Che soon realizes Brian may not be ready to take on the responsibilities asked of him.
