Twenty-one-year-old narcoleptic Angel Duet knows her father harbors secrets. He loves and protects her, but his suspicious refusal to discuss her mothers death drives Angel to worship an image created from the little history she does have: her fathers sketchy stories and her mothers treasured photography, studies of clouds that have hung in the their foyer for more than twenty years. When her fathers girlfriend moves in, the photographs come down, and Angels search for truth becomes an obsession. As she struggles to uncover the past and gain control over the narcolepsy that often fogs her world, Angel descends into a dizzying realm of drugs, adultery, and confused desire that further obscures reality. As Angel begins to expose a history she could never have imagined, she discovers her entire life has been anchored around lies. Accepting the truth, once found, is the key to understanding herself, her family, and her life. To truly awaken, Angel must realize that sometimes the gifts we receive are not what we wantand only in time do we see their worth.
