Inspired by Wim Wenders' Wings of Desire. A lonely girl whose only friends and family in the world are books, is being watched over by a Guardian Angel who saves her from a disaster.
It's also auto-biographical. When I was growing up in Belarus, many young lonely girls of all ages would commit suicides by jumping off the roof (always 9th floor!). And the mothers would try to develop in their daughters a phobia of heights, Mine would put me in a corner for hours at a time as a punishment if I came dangerously too close to one!
