When his grandmother Polly is found wandering outside one morning, Jack, a successful architect, must travel back to his tiny hometown in the mountains of West Virginia to deal with her worsening Alzheimer's. But what was intended to be a quick, under-the-radar trip becomes complicated when no local nursing home can take Polly.
Torn between the career opportunity of a lifetime, caring for his last living relative and running from his own painful memories, Jack’s carefully constructed life begins to unravel. As the town prepares to honor Polly’s life by crowning her the “Queen of Cass” at the local festival, Jack struggles to hide his secret from them all.
But when a childhood friend forces it out of him, Jack must choose between standing still or facing the pain of his past, so that he can finally move on with his life. Angel’s Perch examines the delicate relationship between past and present, memory and loss.
