Angel is the story of the unlikely friendship of Miriam, an old woman slipping into dementia, and Bill, a girl who wants to get away from her bickering parents. Bill finds that nothing has been thrown out at Miriam’s house for nearly 50 years, and her home is covered in a landscape of paper – notes, clippings and  reminders. Miriam longs to finish an unfinished childhood race, so Bill helps her steal an old friend from the place that smells of vegetables and escape to the top of the hill. Angel shows that whatever our age, we can still play, laugh and learn from each other.
