Summary A collection of six short films from Australia, India, the United States, Japan, and Germany. In Inja, a South African landowner goes to great extremes to separate a Black boy and his puppy. Sangam features a conversation on a subway between an Indian who has just arrived in New York and a disillusioned Indian-American. Mt. Head is an animated fantasy about a man who eats some cherry seeds and ends up with a cherry tree growing out of his head. In Das Rad (also animated), two rocks who have stood atop the same hilltop for centuries, discuss the activities of the human beings below them. The first three lives of Stuart Hornsley tells the story of an abstracted physicist who, having missed out on a chance at true love because of his dedication to science, builds a time travel device to enable him to change the course of his life. Deathdealer : documentary is a mock documentary in which the Grim Reaper is protrayed along the lines of a traveling salesman.
