The Angels of Lemnos
Homeless in a bitter cold urban winter, a man and his friends bring glimmers of light and a touch of warmth to the darkness and freezing sidewalks. Mildly retarded since birth, Nathan Spandrel's search for meaning becomes a confusion of angels and demons conjured from his past. You may never look at the homeless the same way again.
