The film is about the life cycle of the work of art. It depicts the process of creating a work of art starting from a bare canvas to the final signature. The main character of the film is the Armenian artist Arshak Sarkissian.
Most of the time the process of creating art remains hidden from the public. Arshak graciously agreed to reveal his ideas and technical aspects of his project "Angels and Damons" through this short documentary film. The entire film is shot using only natural light with no effects or artificial enhancements that show the pure nature of art making.
