This independent film revolves around the life of Stan (Henry G. Sanders), an African-American who works in a slaughterhouse. Set in the predominantly Black-populated community of Watts in Los Angeles during the mid-1970s, it presents Black life from the vantage of its residents.
A dreamer, Stan is married, though the name of his wife (Kaycee Moore) is never mentioned. They have two children, Stan Jr. (Jack Drummond) and Angela (Angela Burnett). The monotony and long hours of this arduous labor have begun to take its toll. Feeling helpless and, at times, hopeful, he tries to reckon the next step that could be best for himself and his family.
