They chat about relationships, family and blueberry pies. Jane confesses she feels lonely sometimes and can’t wait to have a baby. The following day Sabrina goes back to meet Jane’s husband, Jerry, and during their conversation she realizes she’s stuck in a weird time capsule in 1977, and Jane and Jerry are her parents. After trying to convince the couple about her identity, Sabrina begs them not to have kids, revealing that her mom suffered from severe postpartum depression and ended up killing herself and her father. Will Jane believe her though? "The Lost Recording": Jo Ann is a mother and a grandmother. She was also a wife. A surprising discovery is made when an old forgotten recording is found on a tape recorder. Jo Ann is transported back in time to a single night through the recording of her and her husband from several years earlier. On that night, Tom and Jo Ann are at a crossroads in their relationship. With the backdrop of 40’s music the scenes play out. They work through their differences until a hidden truth is revealed about Tom’s health which changes everything. Their vow to love each other through sickness and health, till death do them part will be tested. The question is, whether her past can bring peace to her present. This play is based on a true story. "The Lion in the Snow Globe": 17-year-old Veronica is a great admirer of female superheroes. What she loves most about them is that they don’t start out wanting to be superheroes, but when there's a life in the balance, they’ll leap into the fray in order to set things right. Every Christmas season since she was very young, Veronica has visited the magnificent bronze lion standing watch in front of her great-uncle’s department store, sharing confidences as well as the scent of a marzipan cookie. Over time she becomes aware that this bronze statue is a sentient being. Late one Christmas Eve, threatened with exile from the town square he loves, Lion makes one final leap and transforms into a live African lion, prowling the city streets in search of the long-shuttered amusement park that was his first home. It’s up to Veronica to find him and keep him safe from police bullets long enough to restore him to his place on the town square. "With Regards to Marty McFly": The plot is set in motion when Sophie turns her teachers into their 1980s teen-aged selves, using the time machine she invented for the science fair. By looking into the teachers’ pasts, Sophie and her classmates get a glimpse into their own futures, and they’re not sure they like what they see.
