What do you mean with "call" or "return"?

I assume you are in a Python Script. Then you can (usually) access
"root.nah.someFile" by "context.nah.someFile".

In order for this to work, "/root/nah" must be "nearest" (with respect to
acquisition search order) "nah" to "context".
It would, e.g., not work from "/root/blah/nah/someScript".
