Join the bride and groom at a Courthouse wedding, observe a surrealistic Federal Court, and witness a committee of clerics charged with creating a secular prayer. The family dog is not forgotten as one story sees events from Bullet's point of view. Whether on a space walk, or in a great music hall listening to the final concert of a violin virtuoso, the visual images will remain long after the stories are read.
