SYNOPSIS

CLOSING TIME is a suspense thriller in the tradition of FARGO, SILENCE OF THE LAMBS and THE DEAD ZONE.

In a period of 18 months, three professional women have disappeared from a small New England town. Sheriff Nickie Welles, who has learned that state budget cutbacks will soon eliminate her job, is determined to find out who is behind these terrible crimes. In an act of desperation, Nickie asks James Hart, a local psychic, to help solve this tragic mystery before her tenure comes to an end.

However, Detective Sandra Franks, Nickie's lesbian lover, believes James is a fake and that her girlfriend is in over her head. James has problems of his own. Troubled by a sleep disorder, he checks himself into a hospital where he meets an oversexed nurse who will become the next victim of these mysterious crimes. James suspects someone is out to frame him. Could it be Sandra? Ultimately their investigation will uncover a terrible secret that will bring Nickie, James and Sandra to the brink.

CLOSING TIME is the first original screenplay by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Christopher Ward. Christopher Ward, director/writer, is a multi-award winning writer/director whose work has aired on SHOWTIME, HBO, MTV, CBS, CNBC, and SUNDANCE.
