Synopsis

Low-budget, realist feature drama, recently rediscovered and restored, from acclaimed African-American director Charles Burnett. Stan (Henry G Sanders) is a gentle dreamer whose job at a slaughterhouse is starting to take a toll on his psyche. On top of the pressures of his work, he's also beset by financial problems. Despite these trials, he still manages to find respite and solace in life's simpler pleasures - slow dancing with his wife (Kaycee Moore), embracing his daughter (Angela Burnett), the feel of a warm cup of coffee when he holds it against his cheek. The film offers no quick fix; it presents Stan's life as it is - sometimes bleak, sometimes filled with joy and humour.
