Hazardous Materials examines the course of several lives as investigators sort through the detritus left by an unidentified woman in a Chicago apartment.
EdanEv tells the story of four college friends, reunited in mid-life for a family wedding, and the life-altering decisions each makes about the next chapters of their lives.
