THE DOOR - A father attempts to come to terms with the devastating effects of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.

INSTEAD OF ABRACADABRA - Tomas is a bit too old to still be living with his parents, but his dream of becoming a magician leaves him with no other option.

KAVI - Kavi is a boy in India who wants to play cricket and go to school, but instead he is forced to work in a brick kiln as a modern-day slave. Unsatisfied with his fate, Kavi must either accept what he's always been told, or fight for a different life even if he's unsure of the ultimate outcome.

MIRACLE FISH - After falling asleep in the sick bay, little Joe wakes up to find his dream may have become a reality.

THE NEW TENANTS - A prying neighbor, a glassy-eyed drug dealer, and a husband brandishing both a weapon and a vendetta make up the welcome wagon. Set amidst the as-yet-unopened boxes and the hopes for a fresh start of two men on what might just be the worst moving day ever. Their new apartment reveals its terrifying history in a film that is by turns funny, frightening, and unexpectedly romantic.
