The story focuses on a tormented black journalist, plagued by an addiction to sado-masochistic sex, who’s sexual perversions lead him to discovers a plot to overthrow the country when he enlists the help of his faithful white servant to foil the conspiracy. It has elements of love, sex, reverse discrimination, corruption, and violence in its story plot. It is a nostalgic look at what could have been America if it had a radically different history.
