    • Synopsis
    • Skinner (Alfred Molina), is a sham psychic, fleeing his debts, going from town to town preying on the bereaved. Ten-year-old Sam’s just lost his mum. He’s convinced that if Skinner helps him get to the iconic statue the Angel of the North, he’ll be able to talk to her in the afterlife. According to Sam, the Angel is like a giant antenna… well, obviously. He’s got the cash and so begins the pair’s journey – with Sam’s sister, his dad, and Skinner’s loan shark in hot pursuit. As Sam and Skinner travel across motorway and moorland, an unlikely friendship develops, with hilarious and troubling consequences. When will Sam realize he’s being used by his new friend? What will this mean for his chances of contacting his mum? Will Skinner grow a conscience? One thing is certain: neither Sam nor Skinner will ever be the same again.
      Grief; family; the afterlife: SAM AND THE ANGEL asks the big questions. It’s about a rough-edged pair crossing beautiful countryside with magic in the air.
