Four L.A. artists set out on a quest to paint the White House
in rainbow colors, resonant with the multi-colors of their bandAfrican-American,
Chicano, and American Indianand with the diverse incentives
each carries. The film expressively portrays the dreams of the
group's leader Tudee. A chance encounter with Civil War "re-enactors"
intensifies into danger, and the deeper meaning of the dreaming
affects the outcome.
