True-Life Story of Foster Kid Turned Country Music Star Jimmy Wayne Inspires the Touching Film Paper Angels

Based on His Life Story — and His Best-Selling Novel — the Heartwarming Film Paper Angels is Now Available on DVD

Arriving on DVD in time for the holidays, Paper Angels, starring Josie Bisset (The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Melrose Place) and Matthew Settle (Gossip Girl) tells the story of a young boy whose life is changed after enrolling in the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program. According to country singer Jimmy Wayne, whose real life and best-selling novel Paper Angels inspired the movie, “When I was nine years old my ‘paper angel’ hung on an Angel Tree in a mall just like the children in the film. I received my first guitar that Christmas and years later I was performing at Madison Square Garden with a record deal. I’m where I am today because of the generosity of The Salvation Army and those who take part in the Angel Tree program.”
