Produced by and starring Kristy Swanson “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”  and directed by Greg Robbins. It is the story of how Jim Peters and his company – T-shirts 4 Troops – have helped 11,000 combat troops. Heroic men and women who have lost limbs, sight, hearing and are left emotionally scarred from the battlefield. In this feature-length film we find Jim; on his first day at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, DC, where he visits troopers that narrowly avoided death in combat. Jim nurtures and encourages them to live life when most have given up hope and only wish they had  died from their wounds. Jim does it armed with nothing but a Marvel Comic Super Hero t-shirt, love of his fellow man and courage! The film also stars four wounded warriors playing themselves. 

Where Heaven & Hell Collide examines the struggles, heroics and lives of four different combat soldiers through Jims dialogue with his counselor. www.whereheavenandhellcollide.com
