Cast & Crew
Athena owns a small shop selling essential oils and holds aromatherapy seminars. Although this 28-year gives the appearance of being very cool, it's all surface. Her life follows the same dull routine, until one day, an angel lands on her balcony while she's sitting in the bathtub. Athena locks the strange being in a cage, observing it until she is quite sure that it really is an angel that has broken one of its wings and therefore can no longer fly. She lets the angel out of the cage and nurses his injured wing. But the angel gets weaker and weaker; he needs love if he is to survive until heaven's gates re-open for him. Athena decides to go out with him to give him the opportunity to meet someone. Everyone falls for him, wherever he goes - both men and women. Only Athena remains impervious to his charms. She may be able to mix just the right perfumes for everyone else, but she just can't seem to find the scent that will help her get over the death of her boyfriend...
