Summary:
Parable: Allegorical portrayal of the Passion of Jesus told through the story of a circus clown who both comforts his fellow performers and disrupts their lives.
Antkeeper: Tells the story of a gardener who decides to raise ants so that they might add to the beauty of his gardens. Instead, the ants fight among one another, they succumb to the temptations of another's garden and otherwise cause the gardener grief. He then decides to send his own son to live among the ants, becoming one of them, teaching them what they are expected to do and how they should live.
Ark: A prophetic vision of environmental and spiritual degradation depicts one man's desperate attempt to protect a sealed ecosystem from hostile intruders.
One Friday: A day like any other Friday, only an all-out-race war is underway today and no one in this upscale neighborhood is safe, not even a young child whose purity and innocence serves as counterpoint to the chaotic turmoil unfolding all around him.
