Synopsis

A tale about a power-mad Pullman porter who escapes from a chain gang and improbably becomes King of a Caribbean island. Along his rise to power, he flexes his assumed authority, blackmailing his boss, and manuevering his gullible white partner into virtual servitude before taking over the island to which he fled.
