A desperate man strives to leave his mark on the world
Based on a Ralph Ellison story, this gripping and stylish tale was originally featured on PBS' American Storytellers series.
Colman Domingo gives a multi-layered and intense performance as Sonny, a man whose search for the good life culminates in one ultimate and onerous contest. Writer/Director/Producer Elise Robertson skillfully weaves this world for us so well, that it is easy to believe that we are actually eavesdropping in this man's life.
Well-worth trying to catch this 30-minute movie, should it return to the public television airwaves, although it's possible the tape is still available from PBS Home Video or pbs.org.
