Set on Earth facing the "end of the world" due to a solar explosion,
A story of the bond between a black chocolate man and a white boy that transcends racial barriers.
The story is set in a fictional city in the southern United States. Centering on the interaction between a black farmer's "chocolate old man" and his master's son, a "white boy", the story of the sun is interspersed with warnings about social issues such as racism, the Cold War, and nuclear power. The crisis of the Earth's destruction due to an explosion is depicted through interactions with UFOs and aliens. The message of "respect for diversity" that runs through his works seems to predict the present day.
