Event details

A young woman stands on a roof and refuses to come down. What's going on in her Does she want to jump? The police cordoned off the building, onlookers hooted and pulled out their cell phones. The woman's friend, her sister, a policeman and seven other people close or far away from her get out of step. They fall out of the routines of their everyday life, lose their footing - or plunge into a freedom that is no longer thought possible.
