Academy Award-winner Nicolas Cage and critically acclaimed actress Meg Ryan star in this romantic tale of an angel who falls in love with a mortal woman in present-day Los Angeles, the City Of Angels.
After losing a patient in the operating room for no apparent reason, Dr. Maggie Rice (Ryan—Sleepless in Seattle) suffers a crisis of confidence in her ability as a heart surgeon. Seth (Cage—Leaving Las Vegas), the angel dispatched to comfort the dying man, feels an instant attraction to Maggie and yearns to experience the corporeal world that he can only observe.
When Seth materializes and reveals himself to Maggie, her down-to-earth logic clashes with his otherworldly faith. Yet their love for each other grows deeper than either would have believed possible, and Seth must decide whether to give up his status as an angel to live as a human being.
