She struggles through a second marriage to a corrupt civil servant in Indonesia, and comes through it to work in anthropology and assist poverty-stricken women in third world countries. All the while she is raising the 44th President of the United States. The one-woman show Stanley Ann is a globe-trotting tale that sheds light on the formative years of Barack Obama, examining the life and surprising impact of his mother, a would-be scientist from Kansas.
