IDIOTS AND ANGELS is a dark comedy about a man’s battle for his soul.

Angel, a selfish and morally bankrupt man, wakes up one morning with wings on his back. He tries to hide them, but eventually everyone at Bart’s Bar, where he hangs out, discovers them and ridicules him about his bizarre appendages.

Angel visits a doctor to try to have the wings removed, and the doctor realizes that the wings could be his ticket to fame and fortune. But before the doctor can remove the wings, Angel escapes from his office in fear.

As Angel tries to adapt to the wings, he discovers that now that he can fly, he has greater opportunities to abuse others. However, the wings seem to have a will of their own, and they foil all of his greedy plans.

Playing with Plympton’s new short and Telluride film festival hit THE COW WHO WANTED TO BE A HAMBURGER, a funny and touching fable about power of advertising, the meaning of life and the test of a mother’s love.

USA, 2010
