Traveling Vest Virginia
Angel's Perch
Coming Home To Cass



EYEWITNESS ONLINE WEBCAST VIDEO






In 2004, JT Arbogast's grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, and over the next few years he watched as she slowly lost her memories. Through it all, however, the one thing that she always held on to was the little town she had helped to save so many years before. She was so proud of the place and the people. And there was something very poetic about her struggle to hang on to her memories while living in a place that is a preserved memory and that will also pass away in time. JT decided to honor his grandmother and the town of Cass she fought so hard to preserve with the production of a movie...Angel's Perch.

This is the story of Jack, a successful architect living in Pittsburgh, who must make the trip to his tiny hometown when his grandmother Polly, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s, is found wandering outside her house one morning.

But what was intended to be a two day, under the radar trip to town becomes more complicated when Jack is unable to move Polly into an assisted living facility. Torn between the career opportunity of a lifetime, caring for his last living relative and running from his own painful memories, Jack’s carefully constructed life begins to unravel.

As the town prepares to honor Polly’s life by crowning her “Queen of Cass” and the pressure to return to Pittsburgh mounts, Jack struggles to hide behind the walls he has built. And when he finally reveals his secret to an old childhood friend, he is forced to choose between standing still or facing the pain of his past, so that he can finally move forward.

Set almost entirely in the small, historic logging town of Cass, WV, Angel’s Perch examines the delicate relationship between past and present, memory and loss.
