Smallfoot - Atop a high mountain, hidden by clouds, live a tribe of yetis. Sometimes, they gather around a fire and share stories about the "smallfoot" - a mythical creature they've never seen. They don't really believe in such a creature. But, one day, a yeti has an encounter with a human being. He rushes home, yelling about the "smallfoot", but the other yetis don't believe him. Determined to prove the existence of these creatures, the yeti sets out on a mission to gather proof. This film is rated PG.

Newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of both the American dream and the new South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn't commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy's time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy's conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together.
