"Miracle," in which a young woman's carefully devised plans to find romance go awry when her guardian angel shows her the true meaning of love.

"In Coppelius's Toyshop," where a jaded narcissist finds himself trapped in a crowded toy store at Christmastime.

"Epiphany," in which three modern-day wisemen embark on a quest unlike any they've ever experienced.

"Inn," where a choir singer gives shelter to a homeless man and his pregnant wife — only to learn later that there's much more to the couple than meets the eye.

"The Pony"
"Adaptation"
