They photograph the 'Garden City' -- the "most English city outside of England". We get hit with a 7.1 earthquake. We stand up, wave our fists at the heavens and compliment ourselves on our ability to recover. And then we get hit even harder. Now the city has fallen. Many are dead. Many injured. Many narrowly escape. A fragile people reappear in the following days. Once again a response is growing. Communities are rising from the sand. People are holding tight. And now the whole country is rallying for Christchurch. 'When a City Falls' travels way beyond earthquake reactive television footage to a tale of hope, to an inspiring observation of the kindness of human hearts."--Container.
