Based on George Pendle's 2006 book of the same name, Strange Angel explores the dramatic intersection between genius and madness, science and science fiction. The story follows the life of Jack Parsons, a mysterious and brilliant man in 1940s Los Angeles, who by day helps birth the entirely unknown discipline of American rocketry, and by night is a performer of sex magic rituals and a disciple to occultist Aleister Crowley.

In 1930s Los Angeles. Jack Parsons works as a janitor at a chemical factory by day, but, by night, he nurses a secret ambition: to build rockets that will take mankind to the moon. The pressures of his double life are further complicated when Jack and his wife Susan are confronted by a mysterious new neighbor, Ernest Donovan, who appears to be leading a double life of his own.
After Professor Mesulam gives his blessing to the project, Jack and Richard set off to create Caltech's first ever rocketry team. But Caltech's acceptance has come with caveats, and, coupled with Ernest's looming presence, Jack and Susan are feeling more on edge than ever before, desperate to figure out whether Ernest's intentions are evil or not.
Feeling the pressure to succeed and provide Susan with the life he promised, Jack urges the rocketry team to take a risk and start testing their experiments at full volume. Sensing the Parsons' mounting frustrations, Ernest invites them to one of his group's secret gatherings, promising a way to make all their dreams come true.
