Rip LeBeau lives hard. The rhythm of an open road and the roar of a Harley Davidson are the heartbeat of his life. Freedom is always to be found somewhere else, and the siren call of the open highway eases his restlessness. Storming through Arizona's majestic desert landscape in route to California, Rip and his pack of fellow road warriors find themselves stranded when a clutch breaks down. The guarded hospitality of a rancher's wife and her nine-year-old daughter Becky are about to alter LeBeau's odyssey. Filled with a colorful cast of characters, Angel in Chains is an entertaining ride that shows the heart of a seasoned biker is no match for the wisdom of a little girl. Written by

Having seen many student films, "Angel in Chains" was an unexpected pleasure. Easy to see it was a labor of love...not just an assignment for graduation from film school. The first thing that struck me was the cinematography...so bravo to the DP. The story was next....it's charming. Being that it's a religious university, I had expected a lot of "holier than thou's" and G-d references, but this story is told simply and honestly....and the casting for the most part was right on. I expect we'll be seeing more of little Chelsea..not to mention her early Glenn Close resembling mom Tana Lee.
I hope the filmmakers are submitting this to student festivals..It would be a worthy contestant. If anyone gets a chance to find this film...it'll be enjoyed.
