Cunningham is a computer genius working on a Department of Defense project. In his spare time, he simulates angels in his home computer, giving them the powers and responsibilities allotted them in Catholic tradition. But even a genius sometimes finds it difficult to control his creations (the classic Frankenstein problem), and Cunningham's angels are no exception.
