Jacob is tired of living on the family farm and submitting to his father's rules. One day he demands an early inheritance from his dad, who shockingly agrees to give it to him. So Jake heads to the big city to do things his way, without restraint. For a while, he does surprisingly well. He takes huge business risks and converts his small fortune into a big fortune, despite indulging in an extremely flamboyant lifestyle. Jake now has it all: money, ladies and prestige. But then he loses everything, and finds himself eating out of dumpsters and living in a literal pig pen. So he heads back home to work for his father, who surprises him once again by greeting him with open arms?but is it to kiss him or to kill him? Starring Jason Burkey, John Diehl, Edie McClurg and Robert Davi, A LONG WAY OFF is a modern-day version of the Prodigal Son story.

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.
