              A dramatizing of Knut Hamsun's famous novel from 1898, Victoria, which is about the tragic and unhappy love affair between Victoria and Johannes. She's a daughter of a rich estate owner, and he is the son of the poor miller. Despite the deep love between them, her father makes Victoria ditch Johannes, and instead marry to the chamber-mans son Otto. Johannes is a writer, and very fond of the nature, but he can never get the girl he loves above all, the wealthy born Victoria. They meet for the first time at age 14, when she is 10. We follow them for years, where we see Johannes making every possible attempt to impress her, and to climb in social rank, at which he does not succeed. They meet up several times, declaring their love for each other, but Victoria is obliged to marry far richer Otto to ensure their parents needed future prosperity. In the end Victoria dies of tuberculosis, and leaves behind a letter claiming she's now free for Johannes.

                Filmmaker Amy Nicholson portrays the struggle for the future of New York's famed Coney Island from the perspective of an outspoken ride operator as an ambitious real-estate tycoon attempts to exploit the commercial potential of the beloved amusement park, despite the very vocal objections of his many opponents. Eddie Miranda operates the Zipper -- one of the most popular rides on Coney Island. But when Eddie and a number of other small-business owners are forced out of Coney Island by a real-estate mogul more concerned with money than tradition, the people who had built their lives around the park are sent packing as the developer and the city of New York reach an impasse in the attempt to gain an upper hand in the deal. While the developer envisions replacing the park with condos and name-brand shops, the city pushes back with its own plans for making the area more commercial. Meanwhile, with the future of Coney Island hanging in the balance, the citizens whose lives will be impacted the most by any proposed change must fight to get their voices heard by the decision makers on high.
