The Brother from Another Planet

(The Brother from Another Planet)


A black extraterrestrial crashes-lands on Earth in Harlem and is taken in by the regulars of a local bar. The alien changes everyone he meets on his "original and eye-opening" journey through the streets of Urban America. With his gentle good looks and quiet nature he makes fast friends in the hood and uses his super-powers to help dethrone a drug kingpin. But can his message of brotherly love resonate with the intergalactic bounty hunters trying to track him down?
