Detail - New York, late summer, 2000. A party in a spacious Manhattan apartment, hosted by a wealthy young activist. Dozens of idealistic twenty-somethings have impassioned conversations over takeout dumplings and champagne. The evening shines with the heady optimism of a progressive new millennium. A young man, Ben, meets a young woman, Kate—and they begin to fall in love. Kate lives with her head in the clouds, so at first Ben isn’t that concerned when she tells him about the recurring dream she’s had since childhood. In the dream, she’s transported to the past, where she lives a second life as Emilia, the mistress of a nobleman in Elizabethan England. But for Kate, the dream becomes increasingly real, to the point where it threatens to overwhelm her life. And soon she’s waking from it to find the world changed—pictures on her wall she doesn’t recognize, new buildings in the neighborhood that have sprung up overnight. As Kate tries to make sense of what’s happening, Ben worries the woman he’s fallen in love with is losing her grip on reality. Both intoxicating and thought-provoking, The Heavens is a powerful reminder of the consequences of our actions, a poignant testament to how the people we love are destined to change, and a masterful exploration of the power of dreams.

Detail - The story of the monsters involves two brother cats Collins the elder brother and Peter. Peter was a very naive cat who always depended on his brother Collins for protection. He could not go anywhere without Collins. One day as they were taking a walk they met a female cat called Bobby whom they were very afraid of. The cat scared them when he spoke to a monster. Peter was very afraid of monsters. So as they walked round the garden in the neighborhood, Collins was kidnapped by the monster and Peter was left alone. He was very worried and started searching for Collins without success. Suddenly, Peter decided to seek help from the female cat who he was afraid of. He had to put his fears aside and approach bobby for help. So as they searched for Collins together with another friend, eventually both Bobby and his friend were kidnapped by the monsters and Peter is left with nobody to help him. He had learnt so much since Collins was kidnapped and he was now brave to search for his brother and his friends. We walked to the woods of the monsters and when he got there, the big monster tried to threaten him but he was not afraid. He confronted the monster and eventually rescued his brother Collins and his friends. They walked back to their garden happily and Collins was happy that his brother had become a brave cat. The story gives children the courage to face the world and overcome fears. Some children depend entirely on their parents or older people for help and when they encounter a problem on their own, they cannot handle it. We learn from Peter that nothing is impossible and our fears can make us stronger and fearless. It is all about building confidence in us.
