When Angels Fall

When Angels Fall creation 2018

A dystopia… imagining the future may be the best way to look at the present.
In a microcosm under heavy control, mechanics play the role of what was once biological. A group of men and women, survivors of a shattered world, wander between the sky and a scorched earth, manipulated. A disastrous world where frail humanity clings to life.

Men aspiring to fly or angels caught by something that plays at their expense ?
More than characters, symbols. Carrying inside themselves, in their free will, in love and the beauty of letting go, the strength they need to change things.

What if nothing was unchangeable ?
