THE GOOD SEEDS By Lauren Andrews
Featuring:  Marissa M. Miller & Mike Heslin
A thought-provoking yet humorous insight into married life and the modern age.

THE ORANGE LILY By Dymon Taylor Davis
When you say you love me, do you really mean it?
A man and woman fall in love.  Everything is like a movie until the woman becomes pregnant.  The man is not ready to be a father and wants nothing to do with the woman. The woman has to decide between her baby and her husband.

By Ajinkya Desai
We are very willing to stereotype South Asians as nerds, fearful of artistic risk-taking.  However, we forget that most brown people have limited scope to pursue their artistic dreams.
