Tommy Knockers

Synopsis:
Out West, Robert Tapley arrives to take possession of the Bull Dog mine, only to encounter a grizzled Prospector who looks like he's stepped out of the Treasure of the Sierra Madre. And who clearly doesn't want Tapley going into the mine. Is he a ghost? the spirit of the Old West? Something else? East meets West, and history careens headlong into "progress," in this collision of two disparate parts of the American dream that's part folklore and part supernatural comedy.

Voice Of the People, The

Synopsis:
HomeHaven USA, a small American town of just under 500 people, has very simple election protocols. Anyone who wants to run for office simply has to file a petition of intention and pay a modest administrative fee. John Smith has done just that. And that's all he's done. He has no staff, no campaign headquarters, and no platform. He has not made a single speech, and has ignored all requests to be interviewed. Now it's Election Day, and Lloyd Branson is in HomeHaven for Up-To-Date Election Coverage. As the race winds down and a winner is finally declared, Branson tries to answer two questions: Who will be the next mayor HomeHaven? and What are these people thinking?
