A theatrical jazz riff about opposite sides of the American dream in the 60’s. Told from the perspective of Gil Scott-Heron – legendary black poet, musician and spoken word artist – the rise of the Black Arts Movement is intermingled with the Apollo 11 moon mission for an explosion of music, science, race relations and human achievement.
