is a middle-aged handicapped black man in a wheel
chair. He endlessly listens to music, reads books and looks
out the window to oversee the roofs of neighboring houses in
Harlem. Nothing breaks his monotonous loneliness except for
the visits of two helpers - a young Russian woman-social
worker and a young black man-home attendant – who merely do
their duties. But in Mr. Brown’s imagination they all have a
passionate affair. The home attendant loves the social
worker but is very jealous of her because she is madly in
love with Mr. Brown, and Mr. Brown himself is in love with
the home attendant-boy. These “relationships” develop
gradually over continuous visits of two helpers. And in Mr.
Brown’s world their passion is expressed through the dance.
Unable to withstand the energy of love and possession Mr.
Brown kills the home attendant and sinks into a prison of
his loneliness and wheel chair.
