Enigma Variations - Zany hijinks as a pair of lookalikes named Bebe W.W. Doppel-gängler solve an identity crisis with the help of Dr William W. Williams and his nurse Fifi, who may or may not be Aphrodite the Goddess of Love. Or is she a male gym-teacher in a dress? (3M, 2W)

Babel`s In Arms - Two blue-collar Mesopotamian construction workers are handed a provocative task: build the Tower of Babel - or else. How many stones does it take to get to heaven, anyway? (3M, 2W)

Soap Opera - A washing-machine repairman falls in love with a picture-perfect washer. Should he tell his girlfriend Mabel? Is the washer two-timing him with a dryer? Stay tuned (3M, 2W)

Lives Of The Saints - A tender and gently comic meditation. Two women preparing a funeral breakfast in a church basement muse on life, death, and the meaning of Polish jokes - and along the way achieve a kind of sanctity (3M, 2W)
