With Black Power on the rise, Ra disembarks and proclaims himself "the alter-destiny." He holds a myth-vs reality rap session with vblack inner-city youth at a rec center, threatening "to chain you up and take you with me, like they did you in Africa" if they resist his mplea to go to outer space. He duels at cards with The Overseer, a satanic overlord, with the fate of the black race at stake. Ra wins the right to a world concert, which features great performance footage of the Arkestra.

Movie Trivia:
  • According to director 'John Coney (I)', the film utilized a sound stage that was controlled by 'Artie Mitchell' and 'Jim Mitchell (IV)', who were concurrently filming Behind the Green Door (1972). The production teams from both films shared the sound stage expenses, as well as the sound stage itself: the riser on which the Arkestra performed was also used by the Mitchell Bros. for "other purposes."
  • Sun Ra wrote all of his own lines for the film.
