A teenaged girl discovers a smuggling ring in the church her family attends. A father makes an uncomfortable confession on the eve of his daughter's wedding. A couple seeks a mate for their dead son's semen samples. Parents and children demand conformity from one another: in marriage, sexuality, living arrangements and matters of religious faith. The women in these stories transcend, disappoint and explode the myths of every day expectations, and establish instead the rituals of their own spiritual realities.
