This searing drama by the brilliant Ethiopian-born filmmaker Haile Gerima (Bush Mama) concerns a disillusioned Vietnam veteran who leaves Washington and his politically committed girlfriend for Los Angeles, where he gets into trouble with the law. A crucial film of the independent eighties, and a cornerstone work of the movement of UCLA filmmakers now known as the L.A. Rebellion.
