In this charming romantic comedy, the road to true love is a rocky path indeed. Lovable loser Ricky McDown (Matt Markey, who also wrote the screenplay) is a struggling actor with a light wallet, a big heart and an even bigger Rocky Balboa fixation. This regular joe is head over heels for his gorgeous new girlfriend, Tracy (Jessica Manuel)?and he's planning to propose. Not impressed with his plastic wine glasses, "chateau de dollar store" vino and gumball machine ring, this diva-in-training unceremoniously dumps him?via voicemail no less?after six weeks. Desperate and heartsick, Ricky is determined to win her back?but he is completely clueless about the truth behind their short-lived "relationship". With the help of his misguided (but well-intentioned) best buds, his adorable boxing gym pal Janie (Sabrina Bolin) and some much-needed inspiration from the Italian Stallion, Ricky may just find true love after all.

War
A powerful, emotional and relevant reminder of the heartbreaking toll war takes on the innocent, this award-winning documentary tells the story of the Japanese invasion of Nanking, China, in the early days of World War II. As part of a campaign to conquer all of China, the Japanese subjected Nanking?which was then China's capital?to months of aerial bombardment, and when the city fell, the Japanese army unleashed murder and rape on a horrifying scale. In the midst of the rampage, a small group of Westerners banded together to establish a Safety Zone where over 200,000 Chinese found refuge. Unarmed, these missionaries, university professors, doctors and businessmen?including a Nazi named John Rabe?bore witness to the events, while risking their own lives to protect civilians from slaughter. The story is told through deeply moving interviews with Chinese survivors, chilling archival footage and photos, testimonies of former Japanese soldiers?and a staged reading of the Westerners' letters and diaries by Woody Harrelson, Mariel Hemingway, Jurgen Prochnow and others. NANKING is a testament to the courage and conviction of individuals who were determined to act in the face of evil and a powerful tribute to the resilience of the Chinese people?a gripping account of light in the darkest of times. This version of the film features descriptive narration for the blind and visually impaired, created by the Narrative Television Network.
