A documentary about Gil Scott-Heron, one of rap's earliest pioneers. Interspliced between performance footage of Scott-Heron and his Midnight Band are vignettes of him walking around Washington D.C., and expressing his views on then-President Reagan (dubbed "Ray-Gun"). The live performance features many of Scott-Heron's best-known hits, including "Johannesburg," "Winter in America," and "Angel Dust," among others.
