A captivating documentary that explores the historical and modern-day role of angels in our society. The image of an angel is instantly recognizable; we tend to think of them as white-winged, halo-headed characters from the Bible - and with good reason. But not all angels are angelic! Angels protect, advise, judge, translate, sing, heal, entertain, and even cook. This film reveals why angels have such a central role in so many cultures, and explores how angels pervade everyday life. It also features first-hand accounts from those who claim they have guardian angels looking after them, and takes a look at the darker side of these spiritual beings, as exemplified by the Hell's Angels.
