What if an angel gave you a choice between a life of happiness or fame and fortune as a result of expressing your art? That is the question that Margaret, a poet, writer, and English professor, must face. Pem, a fallen angel chosen by God and Satan themselves to settle this wager, comes to earth to find an artist to pose this question to, with admittance to heaven & wings or hell & a flamethrower on the line for Pem.
