Storyline

Angel is a selfish, abusive, morally bankrupt man who hangs out as his local bar, berating the other patrons. One day, Angel mysteriously wakes up with a pair of wings on his back. The wings make him do good deeds, contrary to his nature. He desperately tries to rid himself of the good wings, but eventually finds himself fighting those who view the wings as their ticket to fame and fortune. Written by Bill Plympton

Absolutely stunning
11 February 2012 | by kkuffuorSee all my reviews

It's always an amazing and thrilling experience to come across art that hits you with its' depth.

I tried to watch the film when I was tired and looking to have something on as I slept, and something wouldn't allow me to. I'm glad I waited until I was awake and alert the next day to see this.

I've always believed that great work can't easily fit into a genre, and this is one of them.

I highly recommend for those that don't seek explosions and loud noises as entertainment, but something that captures the attention.

The story is crazy. So much is being said that it's almost overwhelming.

Well done.
