Harry’s Angel


Harry has a problem. And while his sister’s loan may be able to hold off the bookie’s frustration for a week or so, what he really needs is an angel.

    Every weekday morning, Harry waits for his sister, Rose in Fanny’s Deli in the Lower East Side of New York City.  She’s always late, though the excuse may vary; he’s always happy with any flavor of Danish, a coffee, and a lottery ticket. Once again, he owes his bookie money and Rose is helping him out with a loan, or, more likely, a gift. At this rate, getting out of his current situation is going to take divine intervention. Or at least an Angel.

    This is a character study of five lives, each of which affects the lives of the others.
