Synopsis

Adaptation of Ralph Ellison's short story "King of the Bingo Game." In 1943 Harlem, Sonny walks the streets of New York in search of work to support his ailing, pregnant wife, Laura, but he's unable to find a job. Hungry and desperate, he seeks refuge at the neighborhood movie house, where -- between shows -- a brightly colored bingo wheel is rolled onto the stage and a lively emcee entices the patrons to play. Sonny's hope is that chance will come to his rescue.
