If you weep at the thought of a White House without Barack Obama, take comfort in Netflix's new original biopic about the future POTUS as a 20-year-old college student.
Barry follows the young ambitious Barack - called Barry by his pals - as he navigates the gritty, crime-ridden New York City of the early 1980s.
Barry, played by Australian actor Devon Terrell, arrives in the city as a junior at Columbia University.
The trailer highlights Obama's sense of displacement as a child of a white mother from rural Kansas and a black father from Kenya.
It also shows him indulging in a few things we don't normally associate with the buttoned-up POTUS: dancing sensuously at a nightclub with a young lady who is not Michelle Obama, hanging out on graffiti-scarred street corners and inside smoky tenement hallways, and lounging shirtless in bed with a cigarette dangling from his mouth.
Throughout the trailer, the theme of Obama's 'otherness' from his classmates is clear - he's of mixed race, he's not into the club scene, and he probably studies just a bit harder than most of them.
'What is your scene?' a young woman asks the doe-eyed Barry.
'I'm trying to figure that out,' he says.
When he tells a man that he is part Kansas, part Kenyan, the man says: 'That makes you American.'
And there are flashes of the idealism that would propel the Democrat to the highest political office in the world: 'I believe people create change,' he says.
It might be a shock for some to see Barack sans Michelle - at this stage of life, his girlfriend is Charlotte, a wealthy young lady from Connecticut, played by Anya Taylor-Joy, a composite of Obama's college girlfriends, including Genevieve Cook.
The movie is directed by Vikram Gandhi and was written by Adam Mansbach.
Barry, which received rave reviews at the Toronto Film Festival, premieres December 16.
