Locked in a deserted old English toy shop, Katherine and her stuffy cousin Matthew meet some very special friends: Ruffles, the clown who wears everyone out with his old routines; Henrietta, the sentimental hippo whose heart's in the right place but her feet aren't; Clarence, the rickety old clock who can tell time but never has enough of it; Wheelie, a truck without a spare tire; and Sarah, the adorable doll Katherine makes her 'little sister.' Their fantasy world becomes a nightmare when Master Jack, the evil Jack-in-the-box who wants to rule Toydom and make Katherine his queen, casts a spell that shrinks her to the size of a doll. General Jim, the white-haired wooden soldier, leads his ragtag band of toys into battle--but if they can't capture Jack's magic locket before sunrise, Katherine will stay small forever!

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.
