A recent college graduate tracks down the little girl his father died rescuing 18 years ago. Devastated by finding she’s grown up to become a heroin addict, the revelation still isn’t enough to keep him from falling in love with her.
When not writing, Austin is an engineer for a nuclear plant, where most days seem no different than stocking shelves at Costco. In the last two years, Austin's screenplays, CAR HEROIN TRAIN, HER SEVENTH DEATH, and TAMING HOLDEN CAULFIELD have garnered over 50 nominations in film festivals across the States, Europe, and Asia. That's it. That's all I have. I'll the pay the contest fee now.
