Summary
In this vastly amusing, offbeat fantasy, Sayles takes a fresh look at our society through the eyes of a black extraterrestrial (Joe Morton) who crash-lands on Earth -- in Harlem -- and is taken in by the regulars of a local bar. The alien changes everyone he meets on his original and eye-opening journey through the streets of urban America. But can his message of brotherly love resonate with the intergalactic bounty hunters trying to track him down?
