In the feature film DELAYED, engine trouble strands Greg Winters on the farm of eccentric widow Martha Thompson, who offers him a place to stay in exchange for handyman services. Greg agrees to the arrangement, but the old woman's constant disapproval of his careless lifestyle almost makes the arrangement intolerable. Then he meets Martha's beautiful daughter and begins to warm up to country life. But that all changes when the local sheriff arrives on the farm investigating a brutal hit-and-run, and Greg becomes his prime suspect. Can a few days in this small town force Greg to confront his past and change his ways? Or is it too late?

This heartfelt independent features a special appearance by singer/actress Annie Golden, of HBO's Orange is the New Black.

A narrative feature film, BARRIERS is the story of Tori, an affluent urban teen struggling to fit in with his friends.  When Tori befriends Snake, a streetwise kid from Harlem, his concerned parents hire Phil, played by Annie Golden (HBO's Orange is the New Black, Milos Forman's Hair), to be his Nanny and watch out for him. However, Snake's older and more dangerous brother emerges and Phil realizes the job is much more involved than she ever imagined. The iconic Quentin Crisp also stars as a profound deli-owner who advises Tori along the way.
