"A thoroughly entertaining, delightful tale. Tremendously funny and touching." - Boxoffice
The visionary writer-director behind such films as Passion Fish, Lone Star and Sunshine State, Oscar nominee John Sayles has been at the forefront of independent cinema for more than twenty years.
In this "vastly amusing, offbeat fantasy" (Variety), Sayles takes "a fresh look at our society" (Los Angeles Times) 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" (The Hollywood Reporter) journey through the streets of Urban America. btu can his message of brotherly love resonate with the intergalactic bounty hunters trying to track him down?
