“Bloody Hell!.” -Bill.

“Have we just died and gone to heaven?” – Jennifer.
I was awestruck when I read Bill’s Instagram post last week describing he and his wife’s near death experience immediately after celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary and receiving hopeful distribution news about his upcoming film, Facing Fear.
