Ted Markham and George Hildebrandt are two ordinary, small town maintenance workers at a college in Upstate New York. Best friends, they love their families and enjoy a simple life.
After pursuing an intruder after hours at a Museum Exhibition on the college campus, the men become local heroes.
But Ted and Hilde learn that the intruder is lost, finding themselves torn between helping him find his home, and taking care of their own.
At the risk of losing their jobs and being called crazy, these men choose to help a stranger. By making this profound choice they better appreciate all that they have, all that they love.
William has appeared in a wide range of films such as Crash, Black Hawk Down, Go, The Perfect Storm, Heat, Elysium, 12 Strong, and the upcoming OG, Finding Steve McQueen, and All The Devil's Men, to name a few. The indie film Cold Brook has been a labor of love for William and co-writer Cain DeVore for years. William directed, produced and starred in the film that was mostly shot in his beloved hometown of Buffalo, New York.
