POV Short Cuts is a one-hour collection of documentary shorts by established and emerging filmmakers. "Big Birding Day" offers a glimpse into the world of competitive birdwatching. In "Flawed," artist Andrea Dorfman's drawings burst into life as she animates the story of her long-distance relationship with a man whose profession plastic surgery -- gives her plenty of fodder. In Poland, a mother has the right to give her child away and lose all parental rights -- during the first six weeks of the newborn's life. "Six Weeks" follows a single mother who must decide what is best for her baby. In the animated short "Tiffany," Beverly Morris tells of her ongoing struggle to hold on to the most contested object in her divorce -- the Tiffany lamp. StoryCorps brings its Peabody Award-winning storytelling to POV for a second season. In "Miss Devine," cousins James Ransom and Cherie Johnson recall their inimitable Sunday school teacher, Miss Lizzie Devine. In "No More Questions!," strong-willed grandmother Kay Wang allowed her son and granddaughter to drag her into a StoryCorps booth.
