Marisol is a play of magical realism, telling the story of a young Puerto Rican woman, who has elevated herself into the world of publishing, while continuing to live alone in the dangerous Bronx neighborhood of her childhood. After surviving an attack on the street, Marisol is visited by her guardian angel who informs her that she can no longer serve as Marisol's protector because she has been called to join the revolution already in progress against an old and senile God. The war in heaven spills over into New York City, reducing it to a smoldering urban wasteland. Alone, without her protector, Marisol begins a nightmare journey into this new war zone. With the apocalypse well under way, the angels have traded in their wings for Uzis and wear leather motorcycle jackets and fatigues. As the action builds to a crescendo, the masses of homeless and displaced people join the angels in the war to save the universe.
