Program contains four independent films that Say Brother producer Topper Carrew produced or helped execute. These include the animated short The Maggot (an anti-drug film for children), Mississippi Fred MacDowell (about the blues musician acclaimed by his contemporaries, but commercially ignored), This is the Home of Mrs. Levant Graham (a film documenting the inner-city household of a Black woman and her children), and A Wild Irish Rose (a film about a group of alcoholics who congregate in a Washington, DC parking lot to talk, sing and drink).
