Everyday business in an ordinary town comes to a standstill. A gas explosion? An earthquake? A war? Or a bicycle accident? People at the periphery of a catastrophe of unknown dimension are thrown into distress without being subjected to any acute danger. What is under scrutiny is the resilience, the sense of values and the social competence of people who are robbed of their habitual securities.
