about

The Angel of Solitude presides over the lives of eight young lesbian women who strive to achieve an all-female utopia within which homophobia, their pasts and their differences are abolished. As the narrative unfolds, we realize that none of the women are present directly-they come into being, and live their lives, only in and through the memories, observations and imaginations of each of the others.
