Adapted from the novel Star Farm by Hungarian writer Ervin Lazar, the stories focus on life, death,
and resurrection.  The first involves a gawky but athletic teenager who bests a series of visiting
soldiers in various athletic competitions.In the second, a visiting state official promises he can
resurrect the dead, prompting the villagers to exhume four bodies with startling results. Finally,
an elderly couple outwits the authorities who want them to relocate with a highly unusual trick!
