It has been screened by television networks, international film festivals and professional conferences worldwide. One night there is an air raid, and Rosa, Hans, and Liesel leave for a bomb shelter down the road. Max remains alone in the Hubermanns' basement, which has been deemed too shallow to be a shelter. On the street, everyone carries their most precious possessions -- Liesel takes her books.

In the coming months, I hope to let every citizen know what steps he can take without delay to protect his family in case of attack.

In the basement vault where the hospital keeps its X-rays, someone discovers that the X-rays have all been exposed, leading to more speculation and questions about the strange bomb. Dr. Fujii listens to rumors of magnesium dust and speculates on what has happened.
