He left home as a child. He traveled the world and visited places few men have seen. There is no way to contact him. Yet, whenever a death occurs in his family, he knows to return home. He just knows. Sidney Poitier is BROTHER JOHN in this compelling film about the mysteries and prejudice of a small Alabama town on the brink of upheaval. When John Kane(Poitier) returns to his sister's deathbed, the suddenness of his arrival stirs up considerable interest for Doc Thomas(Will Geer), who is intrigued by this "unworldly" man with the uncanny awareness about death. Could John be the angel of death? Doc's son, Lloyd(Bradford Dillman), thinks otherwise. Conviced John is an outside agitator sent to help black workers strike a major industrial plant, Lloyd instigates a brutal fight wich sends John to prison. Now the threat of erupting violence hovers over the town, with the enigmatic Brother John as its main focus. Is there a connection? If so, what can be done? And the biggest question of all- who or what is BROTHER JOHN?
