In 2003, Nicholas O'Neill, barely 18 years old, became the youngest victim of the devastating Station Nightclub Fire in West Warwick, Rhode Island. Weeks later, his family recovered a one-act play he had written a year earlier. Amazingly, the play told the story of teenagers who have died and become angels, with one of the characters based on Nicky himself. One year later, a group of dedicated friends and family members came together to present the first production of a play that has since become a local legend. THEY WALK AMONG US gives us a glimpose into the heart of a gifted young man whose time came much too soon, while also celebrating the spirit of a community joined together to share with the world a life-changing message of hope.

This NEW & REVISED version of the film is drastically different from the version that first screened in 2005. Thoroughly re-edited with a very different opening sequence and a new original score by composer Michael Teoli, this is an entirely new way of looking at Nicky's remarkable story.
