When the unconscious figure of an angel inexplicably appears in their midst, the inhabitants of the small town of Utopia find their lives disrupted in unexpected ways. Inspired by the magic realism of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, “In the Matter of Fallen Angels” uses the lens of the extraordinary to celebrate the simple, everyday pleasures of ordinary life.
