In a weird parallel world, angel Jonathan (voiced by Ian Ruskin) hands an egg to his little sister (voiced by Katie Leigh), to go to earth and find someone worthy enough to hand them the egg as a symbol of hope. But the little sister doesn't think she's up to the task - and indeed, she breaks the egg, but fortunately her brother is forgiving and hands her another egg.

Meanwhile on a post-apocalyptic earth where breathable air's a rarity, Frank (Tony Markes) and Goose (Kenneth McCabe) have started a search among the ruins of a city for pretty much anything they could need for survival ... but they only run into a psycho soldier who takes both their oxygen tanks, kills Goose and leaves Frank gravely wounded - which is about when the little angel (in the live action scenes played by Rainbow Dolan) descends to earth. She's immediately repulsed by the barren planet, but sees compassion in Frank, so she sees to it that he's saved by Sarah (Filiz Tully), a doctor who inhabits an operating theatre, which is pretty much the only room with fresh air within miles. But our angel observes them for quite a bit before she decides whether to hand them her egg ...


Basically, this film is live action sequences built around the Japanese anime Tenshi no Tamago/Angel's Egg from 1985, a rather stunning film in itself that really didn't need to be augmented with "new scenes" that totally changed the story of the original. But that said, if you now expect something of the likes of a schlocky Richard Harrison Ninja movie, you couldn't be more wrong, as this pieced together live action/animation hybrid is actually a very poetic piece of cinema, one that's high on atmosphere and is of an eerie beauty throughout, that has its sentimental as well as surreal scenes, and that tells a story that's utterly unique and easily transcends the usual post-apocalyptic genre fodder.

Quite an unusual ride to be sure.
