WHEN ST. CHRISTOPHER SLEEPS written by Matt Hilliard-Forde
When a detective is forced to confront her own demons during an investigation of a vicious killer — and two strangers who meet on the road find their true personalities revealed — they are pushed to brutal extremes, and three lives are changed forever.

He is the writer, director and co-producer of the indie feature “Long Hot Summer” and the writer/director of a number of shorts, including the award-winning “The Hall,” and “Running Towards Tomorrow.” “When St Christopher Sleeps” is his second feature screenplay.
