You need to make sure your module is either in the working directory you
started the Python session in, or in your PYTHONPATH, for example by
adjusting os.env["PYTHONPATH"] before attempting to import the module.

This shouldn't be ob-python or even Emacs specific. You can test whether
things work by typing "python" in the terminal and attempting to import
your module.

By the way, are you using IPython or vanilla Python? I recently
encountered an issue trying to import modules through a symlink in
IPython, whereas it worked perfectly fine in a vanilla Python session.
