The Listies have got bills, bills, bills so they need to get to werk, werk, werk! The only thing is, they're not exactly what you would call employable. In fact they've been fired from literally every proper job they've ever had, (apart from when they were human cannonballs, when they weren't fired, because they didn't fire, so they were fired (if you catch my drift). In every episode of THE LISTIES WORK FOR PEANUTS, Matt and Rich have to get a job to pay their rent to their eight year old landlord, Abernathy Peanuts - and if they don't... they'll be out on their BEEPs!

LITTLE VIOLET BLOSSOMS, THE
PRIYANKA TANWAR
Series: FAITH-BASED FEATURE, AGES 13 - 18
Description - St. Claudine Thevenet is a name that epitomizes love, sacrifice and compassion. The founder of the Religious of Jesus and Mary (1818), Claudine was born in a modest French family as the second of seven children. The execution of her two brothers during the French Revolution was the turning point in Claudine's life. It was from this point on that she decided to devote her life to the service of others. The Little Violet Blossoms is a humble attempt to uphold and honour the values and teachings of St. Claudine Thevenet that are relevant even today. The story of our film juxtaposes St. Claudine's life during the French Revolution with the life of our protagonist, 14-year-old Glady Sequeira in today's times. As Glady is confronted with the violent murder of her parents, she not only has to cope with this tragic loss, but she must also identify the culprit responsible for her parents' murder. Through Glady's journey of dealing with this conflict, she is reminded of various teachings of St. Claudine Thevenet. Eventually, Glady is able to let go of the hurt and anguish as she embraces the most valuable lesson St. Claudine imparted through her own life, that of unconditional love and forgiveness.
