Angel City follows Ace, an optimistic rideshare driver in Los Angeles with dreams of becoming a star. As he struggles to make ends meet, he’s suddenly evicted from a hostel, putting his determination to the ultimate test.

The film is an adaptation of Braham’s Emmy-nominated short film, Watchtower, which was inspired by a production assistant who was living in a tent encampment while working to become an actor.

Braham hopes that Angel City will shed light on the overlooked corners of society and offer a voice to those who are often neglected. The film will focus on the homeless community, a community that has been stigmatized, stereotyped, and neglected for far too long, and is close to Braham’s heart and experience. He hopes the film will be a reminder that every person has a story worth telling, that every life is worth living, and that every dream is ultimately worth the sacrifice it takes to fulfill it.
