"Tilt Angel" is a blues-infused fairy tale about a working class Tennessee family struggling with grief and loss in the aftermath of a plane crash. Ollie hasn't left the house in nine years, much to his father's dismay. But when his mother dies en route to Memphis, and his father refuses to even pick up her remains -- much less bury them -- Ollie has to take matters into his own hands. A strange angel-man is there to help, but will his mother go peacefully into the afterlife... or will she put up a fight? Sparks and steel, threatening vegetables, weird wings and weirder hands all collide in this gritty and lyrical comic-epic about a most unusual family.
