Moses Al Shabazz is the impoverished leader of a small religious commune in Miami with three other members, including his wife Venus and followers X and Afrika. The commune, the Star of Six, is a combination of several religious deities, including Allah, "Black Santa", and General Toussaint L'Ouverture. Moses, who - among several other strange beliefs - believes animals can speak to him, preaches of a black uprising to take back the world from their white oppressors, but opposes the use of firearms. He has been prescribed anti-psychotic medication, but does not take it, as it "makes him drowsy". After an attempt to frame a man for a terrorist bombing goes wrong, Agent Kendra Glack of the FBI comes across one of Moses's live-streamed sermons, and decides that he will make the perfect patsy to pin criminal activities on. The FBI plan to arrest Moses after misleading him into committing a criminal act, making them look successful for capturing a dangerous revolutionary. When Moses is served an eviction notice by his landlord, Kendra sends Reza, a pedophilic shopkeeper who is only free because of his cooperation with the FBI, to inform him that his relative is a sheikh affiliated with Al-Qaeda and would like to supply Moses with money and firearms to back his revolutionary preachings. Reza sets up a meeting between Moses and Nura, another FBI informant pretending to be the sheikh, but Moses initially asks only for farm equipment and a horse. Upon further consideration of how much money the guns will allow him to get from the sheikh, however, Moses contacts the sheikh and agrees to accept fifty Kalashnikov rifles.
