The film transpires as a bizarre dream in which God and Satan battle for Little Joe’s (Eddie Anderson) Soul. The devil’s handmaiden, Georgia Brown (Lena Horne), tries to seduce and tempt Joe. Petunia Jackson (Ethel Waters), Joe’s wife, fervently prays for her husband to change his evil ways. Mayhem occurs in and around a night club where Duke Ellington and his Orchestra perform.
