Foster Mom by Chris Cragin-Day
Leslie’s decision to adopt a child is complicated by two factors: a skeptical mother and an unexpected romance. As the relationship with the new man intensifies, so does her conviction about foster parenting. In the end, Leslie must choose between two things she wants desperately: the love of her life and the foster child she's never met.

Cam Baby by Jessica Moss
Matabang and Joseph are secretly webcamming girls and sharing the footage with the Brobonic Union, their secret society of friends. When they rent a room to Clara, who fails to live up to their beauty standards, the operation is in jeopardy until Clara starts dating Tim and suddenly everyone wants to watch. Touching on issues of privacy, consent, identity, and the value of women, Cam Baby is a highly topical and fast-paced ensemble comedy about the selves we create and the stories we watch.

Why I’m Voting For John Anderson
by Patricia Cotter
In a country hungry for a new voice, an inspiring, independent contender emerges for President. Four very different (and slightly lost) campaign workers advocate tirelessly for their long-shot candidate, convinced he can change their country and their lives. Why I’m Voting For John Anderson is a contemporary comedy about class, race and the politics of hope.

Sunday, March 12 at 3 p.m.  
Seder by Sarah Gancher 
In Hungary, retired KGB typist Erzsike comes face-to-face with her own photograph on a museum’s Wall of Murderers—and learns her estranged daughter put it there. The incident fuels a contentious Seder, where deep family secrets call into question a mother’s morality, honor, and sacrifice. Inspired by a true story.
