A Champion Rodeo cowboy and special forces soldier is crushed by war and personal loss and must draw on faith and the "cowboy way" to reclaim his will to live and the love of his life.
Peace River is the story of Casey Shane, a fifth generation New Mexico Rancher, who is raised by his Grandfather, Bo Shane, a WWII vet, who pours his life’s love and wisdom into Casey. Learning the ways of the Cowboy alongside his childhood friend, Maria Martinez, Casey is a championship caliber bull rider. Casey and Maria form a romantic bond before Casey enlists in the U.S. Army and joins the elite Special Forces.
Immediately following the events of September 11, 2001, Casey is deployed to Afghanistan where he fights alongside the Northern Alliance when wounded. Returning home, crushed by War and Personal Loss, Casey must draw on the Cowboy Way and a profound Faith in Christ to recover the Will to Live and the Love of his Life.

Douglas James Vail
Executive Director | Filmmaker
Douglas is the third of five boys raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia. A cinephile and comic book collector, Douglas developed an obsession with black and white films and live stage performances before he learned to read. With dreams to work in Hollywood, Douglas drove cross-country after high school to pursue a career in the film industry. Gleaning what he could from movie sets and blessed with the mentoring from award winning faith-based filmmakers Wes & Amanda Lewellyn, Douglas set out to make motion pictures with the specific purpose to glorify God.
Today Douglas is known for directing, shooting, and editing two full-length feature films, one of which will exhibit in theaters March 3, 2022 through Fathom Events. In addition, Douglas has been invited to guest speak at several Christian Media Events and will be teaching a cinematography course at the largest Christian Film Festival in May 2022.
