Lovers And Other Furnishings In the wee hours of a New Years Day, four men find a tantalizing, bizarre invitation on their answering machines from a woman each of them used to live with, asking them to retrieve the things they left behind. Three of them answer the call. Goading, ribbing and clashing with each other, the men flash back to their lives with Jessica and reveal surprises about themselves. ZING ZANG A twenty-five year marriage and a twenty year friendship are imperiled when Sam has cocktails with his friend Eli's wife at the Polynesian Lounge in Wadsworth, Ohio, and Eli meets Claire on a flight from San Francisco to Cleveland Mayan Mask Unmasking a lie proves dangerous to friendship and two marriages. LIMBO A comedy in which the fear of mortality threatens the 34-year marriage of an irreverent couple when they find themselves locked into the walled patio of a synagogue. Recriminations about a secret and about their Atheist daughters challenge them to a near breaking point, but they share something that not even a clash between Jewish and Hindu gods can match. JUNK MAIL A math professor takes revenge on the post office by scattering his junk mail on the floor, as an art professor at the same college enters to mail a letter. Sharing memories of the days when they were young rebels in the sixties, they enjoy a brief love affair atop the scattered mail, before a bitter misunderstanding leaves the relationship, teetering in the balance.
