Those precious instants at the end of our existence can have as many meanings as human beings living them. But for most of us, they are generally a mirror of our past life, added with fright and deep anxiety for the coming unknown.....Sometimes an angel comes to visit us for this final transformation. When a dying man finally trusts his soul to God, this heavenly visit seems so real. Can the angel offer words of peace?
Notes from the director:
The great American poet Kenneth Fearing wrote the book POEMS in 1935. The text here is but only one of the magnificent texts in it. I precisely chose this one because it deals with the end of one man transformed by an ugly modern society around him. The angel is not really tender to his protégé but he does bring him peace and the promise of eternal life..
