The film follows Wigan's quest in carving two statues of American black activist Malcolm X to commemorate his visit to Smethwick, Birmingham in 1965. One figure is 3 mm high on the head of a toothpick, and the other life sized and carved in chestnut. The soundtrack was composed by Ranking Roger of British ska band The Beat. The film was commissioned by Carlton Television and Arts Council, and made by Pogus Caesar's company Windrush Productions.
