It is 1974, Joseph Florio enters Divine Light Catholic Preparatory Seminary as a fourteen year old Freshman. He quickly learns that not everyone has enrolled to learn about Clerical life. Now his life is threatened in an effort to silence what he knows. His survival will only be possible using his own ingenuity.

Director Statement

Peter invited all of his current Write to Act Students to be a part of the production in some way. Those students became the driving force behind all the elements that made the production possible, including producing, handling all business and SAG requirements, location scouting, assisting the director & tech crew, performing various roles, overseeing costumes, acquiring set pieces and props – and, in even in the submission of the finished product to festivals. None of this would be possible without this team of exceptionally talented and driven artists and business minded professionals!

As the case with most independent productions, the prep and filming of When Angels Fear had its challenges. However, none of those challenges involved negative attitudes or ego clashes. This was, in fact, one of the most unifying and collectively gratifying experiences every artist dreams of having on the set of a film. Though we were all exhausted by the end of filming, the cast and crew agreed that we were all sad to see the production/set days come to an end. Close friendships and working relationships were forged and we all look forward to working together again on our next film/television project!
