An Angel in Miami
Dark forces gather in the VIP section of a top Miami nightclub. Contemporary drama by Sebastian Baczkiewicz recorded in America’s fastest-growing city.
Amir Hernandez runs things. He drives a purple convertible, has a beautiful business partner and access to the VIP section of a renowned Miami nightclub. But when his special celebrity guest fails to show up, his paying guests become restless and he needs some kind of miracle. A distinguished visitor offers to help.
To research An Angel in Miami, writer Sebastian Baczkiewicz and producer Joby Waldman visited Miami to record interviews. They heard stories of a war between angels and demons shared by children in the city’s homeless shelters in the early 1990s. These interviews informed the narrative and can be heard punctuating the drama.
