A cave-dwelling man sets out to track down the killer of a homeless boy, and bring him to justice.
The film is dedicated to Billie Neal, with whom Director Kasi Lemmons worked on Eve's Bayou (1997) and Gridlock'd (1997).
Don't you watch me! You think you're gonna crawl into my brain and see a show? That what I am? Is that what you think?
Social Worker: What I think, Mr. Ledbetter, is that the temperature is dropping.
Romulus Ledbetter: I got freezing temperatures all over my brain. And I got legends...
In one shot when Bob and Betty toast Romulus in his new suit, Bob's "z-ray" green drink is orange (though this may have been intentional, since it is unclear if the "z-rays" are simply in Romulus's mind).
For "Billie" 1955-1999 - "love you baby. always have. always will."
