Idiots And Angels

One fine morning an unscrupulous businessman wakes up to see two angel wings growing on his back and forcing him to perform good acts against his baser nature. But will they be enough to help him save his soul? A Festival favorite, Bill Plympton (Hair High) returns with a little animated gem, Idiots and Angels, a contemporary morality tale with strong romance and noir undercurrents. The story might sound difficult to pull off, but nothing can come as surprise from the man that convincingly portrayed the love between a fan and a flower.
