Blaxploitation spoof follows an afro-sporting African-American action hero as he looks to avenge his brother's death at the hands of The Man.

1970s action hero Black Dynamite, a no-nonsense, afro-sporting caricature, loses his only brother to The Man as part of a concentrated, violent effort to keep his kind down by undermining the operations of urban orphanages and liquor stores. Consumed by a desire for revenge, Black Dynamite takes a valiant stand against The Man's wicked ways, launching a vigilante campaign for justice leading him all the way to the infamous Honky House.
