“Entertaining Angels” is a gritty, often tragically humorous story about loss, addiction, and redemption. It is the story of a tough, smart, mob enforcer who is constantly battling the inner demons of a painful and difficult past.
Jimmy Eagan is a first rate collections enforcer for a local crime boss. Unfortunately, Jimmy is continually plagued by the year old memories of his girlfriend’s heroin overdose. One day, Jimmy’s worst nightmare suddenly comes true; He is ordered by his crime boss to fill in as a drug dealer when an associate is caught stealing and is quickly disposed of. This new assignment brings Jimmy face to face with the excruciating memories of the loss of his girlfriend and his complete and utter disdain for drugs and drug addicts in particular.
As Jimmy assumes control of a back alley drug distribution operation, he encounters a number of different drug addicts that continually try his patience with their bartering, complaining, and generally bizarre personalities…That is until Jimmy meets Jamie…An attractive drug addict and prostitute who eerily resembles his deceased girlfriend, Alissa. Jamie sparks Jimmy’s interest immediately with her toughness and unwillingness to follow the rules of the buyer/seller relationship. Their mutual attraction and intrigue forms a relationship that brings them both to the realization that what they really want is out…Freedom from the pain of the past, and freedom from the tentacles of addiction that have ensnared both of their lives for far too long.
The problem is, there are quite a few people who will do their level best to see Jimmy dead before they allow him to quit his criminal life. At its core, Entertaining Angels is a story about two people struggling to find the strength to grasp for freedom in the face of extreme danger.
- JAMIE: (Female lead role) A Caucasian twenty something female drug addict and prostitute looking for a way to escape her addictions.
