Here lies the conundrum: When and if we do realize the theory of
transplanting brains,who survives? - the brain donor or the body donor?

This movie, however, makes it clear that the brain's owner is the
survivor but nevertheless he becomes a changed man, a white man who
after experiencing racial discrimination, begins thinking like a black
The fact that he is a District Attorney does not shield him from racism
and surprisingly, even those who knew that he used to be a white man
changed their attitude towards him.
Made a few years after the anti-racial discrimination laws were passed
