Even worse, Angel learns the wings have their own moral compass, and are forcing him to be benevolent in a way that hardly suits him. Hoping a professional can help, Angel has a surgeon amputate the wings, but when Bart, the bartender at Angel’s favorite watering hole, makes trouble for a woman he fancies, the wings return again – leading to a war of wills between two corrupt men and one mysterious force for good.
