The story of Angel Reapers revolves around the religious Shaker sect that was present since the early colonial days of America. This show features many traditional Shaker songs as well as traditional dancing. While the Shakers try to maintain a connection to God through a myriad of rituals and celibacy, the temptations of the flesh might convince them towards other priorities.
