In "Collisions", a minor fender bender brings to the boil long-simmering frustrations
in members of the "Greatest Generation" and underemployed twenty-year-olds
in a coffee shop. The generation gap is not wide enough to contain the force
of their collision.

"Death and the Publican" explores the meaning of existence over a few
drinks with an unusual cast of characters in a pub in the afterlife. Lend an
ear as the Publican and his patrons bend their elbows and your sense of
reality at the bar where time stands still.
