Summary

Bobby Taylor is a young black actor whose attempts to find work are dashed when told that he's not "black enough" for the roles being offered. With jobs limited to stereotypes (gang-bangers, pimps and Uncle Toms), Bobby's struggles are told through a series of comic fantasies and dreams in this satire on the ups and downs of being a black actor in Hollywood.
