The Tables
In the middle of New York City, tucked away in the corner of Bryant Park, sit two outdoor ping pong tables where anyone is free to play. Young or old, rich or homeless, it doesn’t matter. During the day, the park provides paddles and balls, but after 7pm the regulars show up, armed with their own. Every night they come together to battle each other and the elements, playing in the wind, rain and even snow. And out of this shared love of the game, a bond was formed between an unlikely group of people. This is the story of the many lives these tables have touched, including the gangbanger who helped put them there

Cut My Hair Barber
Kwame Alexander is a good kid who believes his father to be deceased. This causes him to daydream often about the father he never knew. He lives with his mother, Saundra, a hard-working single-parent. A class-assignment prompts Kwame to pester Saundra about his father. At first she resists and Kwame isn't sure what to do. His best friends, Kenny and Kaya, encourage him to keep at it and Kwame persists until Saundra reveals his father, Levi, is alive. This changes Kwame's life forever
