Mia is a young waitress who dreams about becoming an urban angel -one who performs small, everyday good deeds, such as hugging lonely people to sleep at nights or helping troubled drunk souls find their way home. Eventually she realizes she does have a gift for it, so she dresses up with wings and all and attempts to perform some acts of kindness. However, people actually think she's interfering with their affairs and that she should mind her own business. Is "doing good" a relative concept in harsh NYC? This story is about Mia's resolution to lead a life less ordinary and to bring some of that magic into other people's lives as well. In times in which individualism is the trend, she will put to a test if good is, in fact, still old-fashioned good.
