Jerzy is a writer at the height of his creative powers -- and a heavy drinker who spends large portions of his life smashed. Just when the charismatic Bohemian thinks he's got his addiction under control and falls in love, he goes on a bender to end all benders. He ends up first in casualty and then in a rehab clinic full of bizarre alcoholic characters. Is Jerzy's journey of addiction now really at an end? The Mighty Angel is a film set in delirium. A shocking, yet fascinating trip through the hellish world of a drinker.
